FloodNet: Coupling Adaptive Sampling with Energy Aware Routing in a Flood Warning System

Zhou, Jing and De Roure, David (2007) FloodNet: Coupling Adaptive Sampling with Energy Aware Routing in a Flood Warning System Journal of Computer Science and Technology, 22, (1), pp. 121-130.

Record type: Article


We describe the design of FloodNet, a flood warning system, which uses a grid-based flood predictor model developed by environmental experts to make flood predictions based on readings of water level collected by a set of sensor nodes. To optimize battery consumption, the reporting frequency of sensor nodes is required to be adaptive to local conditions as well as the °ood predictor model. We therefore propose an energy aware routing protocol which allows sensor nodes to consume energy according to this need. This system is notable both for the adaptive sampling regime and the methodology adopted in the design of the adaptive behavior, which involved development of simulation tools and very close collaboration with environmental experts.
