An Energy-Aware Protocol for Periodical Data Collection in Wireless Sensor Networks
- Publication Type:
- Issue Date:
In this paper we propose a protocol for periodical data collection applications in wireless sensor networks. The protocol is energy-aware in the sense that the way of energy consumption used here is evenly distributed. The protocol is chain-oriented and uses data fusion at every sensor node. Compare to other data collection protocols, this protocol shows better performance with respect to both latency and energy. It has been found that the proposed protocol outperforms PEGASIS with respect to latency in data delivery and performs better than that of LEACH with respect to energy. Furthermore, our protocol performs higher number rounds than that of PEGASIS in the case when the first node dies in the network. In a word the protocol shows an outstanding time-energy compromise.
