    On the Design of an Energy-Efficient Low-Latency Integrated Protocol for Distributed Mobile Sensor Networks

    Export to Mendeley

    Self organizing, wireless sensors networks (WSNs) are an emerging and challenging technology that is attracting large attention in the sensor and monitoring community. Impressive progress has been done in recent years regarding all of the layers. Even though, we need to assume that an optimal protocol for every kind of sensor network can not exist but it depends on the application . As a result it is necessary to optimize the protocol for certain scenarios. In many applications for example latency is a crucial factor in addition to energy consumption. In this paper we present MERLIN (Mac Energy e#cient, Routing and Localization INtegrated) as a energy-e#cient low-latency integrated protocol for WSNs. By means of that, the low latency characteristic of MERLIN can be used as a trade o# to extend node lifetimes. The performance in terms of energy consumption and latency is optimized by acting on the slot length. MERLIN is designed specifically to integrate routing, MAC (Medium Access Control) and localization protocols together. Furthermore it can support data queries which is a typical application for WSNs. The MERLIN protocol eliminates the necessity to have any explicit handshake mechanism among nodes and the reliability and robustness is improved using multiple path message propagation in combination with a controlled overhearing mechanism. The protocol divides the network into subsets where nodes are grouped in time zones. As a result MERLIN also shows a good scalability by utilizing an appropriate scheduling mechanism in combination with a contention period.

    Description

    Title : On the Design of an Energy-Efficient Low-Latency Integrated Protocol for Distributed Mobile Sensor Networks
    Abstract : Self organizing, wireless sensors networks (WSNs) are an emerging and challenging technology that is attracting large attention in the sensor and monitoring community. Impressive progress has been done in recent years regarding all of the layers. Even though, we need to assume that an optimal protocol for every kind of sensor network can not exist but it depends on the application . As a result it is necessary to optimize the protocol for certain scenarios. In many applications for example latency is a crucial factor in addition to energy consumption. In this paper we present MERLIN (Mac Energy e#cient, Routing and Localization INtegrated) as a energy-e#cient low-latency integrated protocol for WSNs. By means of that, the low latency characteristic of MERLIN can be used as a trade o# to extend node lifetimes. The performance in terms of energy consumption and latency is optimized by acting on the slot length. MERLIN is designed specifically to integrate routing, MAC (Medium Access Control) and localization protocols together. Furthermore it can support data queries which is a typical application for WSNs. The MERLIN protocol eliminates the necessity to have any explicit handshake mechanism among nodes and the reliability and robustness is improved using multiple path message propagation in combination with a controlled overhearing mechanism. The protocol divides the network into subsets where nodes are grouped in time zones. As a result MERLIN also shows a good scalability by utilizing an appropriate scheduling mechanism in combination with a contention period.
