Glance: A Lightweight Querying Service for Wireless Sensor Networks [chapter]

Murat Demirbas, Anish Arora, Vinod Kulathumani
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Distance-sensitivity guarantee in querying is a highly desirable property in wireless sensor networks as it limits the cost of executing a "query" operation to be within a constant factor of the distance  ...  Our querying service Glance ensures that a "query" operation invoked within d distance of an event intercepts the event's "advertise" operation within d * s distance, where s is a "stretch-factor" tunable  ...  Introduction A major application area for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is environmental monitoring [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] .  ...
