Resource Aware Sensor Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks

Merrett, Geoff V., Al-Hashimi, Bashir M., White, Neil M. and Harris, Nick R. (2005) Resource Aware Sensor Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks At Sensors & their Applications XIII. 06 - 08 Sep 2005. , pp. 137-142.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Wireless sensor networks are continuing to receive considerable research interest due, in part, to the range of possible applications. One of the greatest challenges facing researchers is in overcoming the limited network lifetime inherent in the small locally powered sensor nodes. In this paper, we propose IDEALS, a system to manage a wireless sensor network using a combination of information management, energy harvesting and energy monitoring, which we label resource awareness. Through this, IDEALS is able to extend the network lifetime for important messages, by controlling the degradation of the network to maximise information throughput.
