HYMN: A Novel Hybrid Multi-Hop Routing Algorithm to Improve the Longevity of WSNs

Power-aware routing in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is designed to adequately prolong the lifetime of severely resource-constrained ad hoc wireless sensor nodes. Recent research has identified the energy hole problem in single sink-based WSNs, a characteristic of the many-to-one (converge cast) traffic patterns. In this paper, the authors propose HYbrid Multi-hop routiNg (HYMN) algorithm, which is a hybrid of the two contemporary multi-hop routing algorithm architectures, namely, flat multichip routing that utilizes efficient transmission distances, and hierarchical multi-hop routing algorithms that capitalizes on data aggregation.
