A sensor mote is a small node with the capabilities such as sensing computation, wireless communication. By networking large numbers of sensor nodes, it is possible to obtain data about physical and environmental phenomena. These networks work for very long duration from several months to years. In these applications, sensor nodes use batteries as the sole power source. Therefore, energy efficiency becomes critical issue. In this paper, the author present a novel sleep-scheduling technique called Virtual Backbone Scheduling (VBS) in combination with Remote Differential Compression (RDC) Algorithm and ERPMT (Efficient Routing Power Management Technique) method.
