Chain-based protocols for data broadcasting and gathering in the sensor networks
Proceedings International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium
In wireless sensor networks, the sensor nodes gather information and send the information to a base station periodically. Some important messages need to be broadcasted to all nodes. Data gathering and broadcasting are important operations that consume significant amounts of battery power. Due to the limited battery life, energy efficiency is becoming a major challenging problem in these power-constrained networks. Chain-based protocols construct a transmission chain connecting all nodes todoi:10.1109/ipdps.2003.1213472 dblp:conf/ipps/DuWZ03 fatcat:nm6b37mcsjguzckwhmk2cn726e
