Preventing Direct Communication Between a Sensor and Sink Node with the Help of Hybrid Network Topology for Energy Conservation in Wireless Sensor Network

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are paving a way of miniaturization of sensors and actuators by proving a way of boost in the wireless communications by constructing small sized, low power and inexpensive sensor devices that posses high-speed sensing, computational, and communication capabilities. This paper presents the combination of Hybrid Hierarchical Network Topology and Use of different Communication Techniques like Sleep & Wait: Transmission of Data and Low Power Listening: Reception/Listening. This paper proposes a system in which the setup of intermediate nodes (Parent nodes) is done to prevent direct communication between a Sensor and Sink node, which in a nutshell prevents large wait times for transmission.
