Comparative Analysis of Different Data Dissemination Strategies in Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless sensor nodes are uniquely suited for monitoring environmental events owing to certain advantages like small size, wireless nature. However, their usage is restricted by only one engineering limitation i.e. short lifetime. There is always a need of an efficient architecture tailored towards enhancing network lifetime which strongly depends on data dissemination strategy used. Data dissemination is the dissemination of the monitored information, the tasks that sensors are supposed to perform and report to the sink. So it is an important issue to design suitable data dissemination protocol according to different application scenarios.
