SBYaoGG: Distributed Energy Efficient Topology Control With Low Interference

Topology control plays an important role in the design of wireless ad hoc and sensor networks; it is capable of constructing networks that have desirable characteristics such as sparser connectivity, lower transmission power and a smaller node degree. In this paper, a novel distributed topology control technique called the novel Smart Boundary Yao Gabriel Graph (SBYaoGG) is presented that enhances energy efficiency and reduces radio interference in wireless sensor networks. Each node in the network makes local decisions about its transmission power and the culmination of these local decisions produce a network topology that preserves global connectivity.
