A Real Time Priority Based Scheduler for Low Rate Wireless Sensor Networks
International Journal of Computer Networks & Communications
This paper presents a priority approach for censorious real-time traffic which flows particularly for low data rate wireless sensor and actor network (LR-WSAN). In the recent years, the demand for low rate wireless data transmission has been increased drastically in small scale industrial and non-industrial applications. The different traffic flows are increased by incorporating a variety of distinct sensing devices. In particular, injection of different traffic into network makes the
... ion system unstable and unreliable because of unnecessarily resource utilization, wasting energy for surplus delivery management and violation of time constraints. This paper aims to presents the new priority-based algorithm at actuator node for appropriate classification and categorization of data packets for delay sensitive and delaytolerant applications. A novel real-time priority-based scheduler (RTPS) is proposed to handle heterogeneous data flows simultaneously according to their transmission type. The priority-based data delivery is an essential research topic for low rate multi-event IEEE 802.15.4 sensor networks. A priority metric is designed to dynamically control various types of traffic based flows with considerations of packet type, delay, and buffer processing rate. TestBed results describe significant improvements in data reporting mechanism for delay sensitive and delay-tolerant applications over various topologies. The high priority transient traffic suffers less delay and presents effective packet delivery ratio compared with traditional approaches.
