In this paper the authors proposes the transmission power control technique considering the shortest-path to minimize the hop-count without the occurrence of any power control messages. They applied the proposed technique on tree-based network component implemented on tiny-OS. And they measured the transmission energy with 21 motes. Compared to before, the proposed technique consumes 75% of the transmission energy of the maximum transmission power solution. As a result of considering the shortest-path, the hop-count considering the shortest-path was about 40% less than a normal network.
