Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are autonomous networks of spatially distributed sensor nodes that are capable of wirelessly communicating with each other in a multihop fashion. Among different metrics, network lifetime and utility, and energy consumption in terms of carbon footprint are key parameters that determine the performance of such a network and entail a sophisticated design at different abstraction levels. In this paper, wireless energy harvesting (WEH), wake-up radio (WUR) scheme,

Specifically, a utility-lifetime maximization problem incorporating WEH, WUR, and ECC, is formulated and solved using distributed dual subgradient algorithm based on the Lagrange multiplier method. Discussion and verification through simulation results show how the proposed solutions improve network utility, prolong the lifetime, and pave the way for a greener WSN by reducing its carbon footprint.
