Wireless Sensor Networks:A case study for Energy Efficient Environmental Monitoring

Mathioudakis, Ioannis, White, Neil M., Harris, Nick R. and Merrett, Geoff V. (2008) Wireless Sensor Networks:A case study for Energy Efficient Environmental Monitoring At Eurosensors 2008, Germany. 07 - 11 Sep 2008.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


Energy efficiency is a key issue for wireless sensor networks, since sensors nodes can often be powered by non-renewable batteries. In this paper, we examine four MAC protocols in terms of energy consumption, throughput and energy efficiency. A forest fire detection application has been simulated using the well-known ns-2 in order to fully evaluate these protocols.
