Efficient Power Management Based on Application Timing Semantics for Wireless Sensor Networks

This paper proposes Efficient Sleep Scheduling based on Application Timing (ESSAT), a novel power management scheme that aggressively exploits the timing semantics of wireless sensor network applications. The authors present three ESSAT protocols each of which integrates a light-weight traffic shaper that actively shapes the workload inside the network to achieve predictable timing proper-ties over multiple hops, and a local scheduling algorithm that wakes up nodes just-in-time based on the timing properties of shaped workloads.
