An Adaptive Energy-Aware Transmission Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks

In this paper, the authors proposed a scheme to extend the lifetime of a wireless sensor network, in which each sensor node decides whether to transmit a message or not and with what range to transmit the message, based on its own energy reserve level and the information contained in each message. The information content in each message is determined through a system of rules describing prospective events in the sensed environment, and how important such events are.
