Data aggregation is a key functionality in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Focuses on data aggregation scheduling problem to minimize the delay (or latency). The paper proposes an efficient distributed algorithm that produces a collision-free schedule for data aggregation in WSNs. The project proves that the delay of the aggregation schedule generated by the algorithm is at most 16R + max node degree - 14 time slots. Here, R is the network radius and the maximum node degree in the communication graph of the original network.
