ZInC: Index-Coding for Many-to-One Communications in ZigBee Sensor Networks

The main goal in wireless sensor networking remains the reduction of the network lifecycle and the enhancement of its reliability, keeping decent performances in terms of throughput and latency. Given the increasing interest of the research community on wireless Network Coding (NC), the authors think such challenges can be tackled using its innovative concepts, especially in the case of many-to-one communications where network coding has shown promising theoretical results. Yet, without a thoughtful adaptation to WSNs, the benefits of NC for sensor networking prove to be too "Greedy" and impractical.
