The authors propose a novel relay augmentation strategy for extending the lifetime of a certain class of Wireless Sensor Networks. In this class, sensors are located at fixed and pre-determined positions and all communication takes place via multi-hop paths in a fixed routing tree rooted at the base station. It is assumed that no accumulation of data takes place along the communication paths and that there is no restriction on where additional relays may be located. Under these assumptions the optimal extension of network lifetime is modeled as the Euclidean k-bottleneck Steiner tree problem.
