Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have a wide variety of military and civil applications. The sensor nodes are powered by batteries with limited energy. Hostile or hazardous environments where the sensor nodes are deployed or the sheer number of the sensors prevents replacement or recharge of the batteries. Therefore in WSNs, scheduling of different types of packets is of vital importance to reduce sensors' energy consumptions and end-to-end data transmission delays. Most of the existing packet-scheduling mechanisms of WSN use First Come First Served (FCFS), non-preemptive priority and preemptive priority scheduling algorithms.
