Energy level performance of three packet delivery schemes in a Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) over fading channels is evaluated. Effects of two short term fading such as Rayleigh and Rician on packet delivery schemes are evaluated. Three different information delivery mechanisms are considered using regenerative relays with or without error correction(More)
Design of an energy efficient wireless sensor network (WSN) has emerged as an important research area. Minimizing energy consumption is the primary objective for WSN. WSN is usually characterized by tiny size, low cost and low transmission power. So optimization of transmission power is of great importance. Optimal transmit power not only achieves better(More)
We propose an adaptive power based transmission scheme for WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks) where transmit power is adapted depending on node density and channel conditions so as to maintain a desired level of signal detection probability at a receiving node as demanded by sensing range. In existing Fixed Transmit Power Scheme (FTPS), detection probability(More)

This paper evaluates energy level performance of error control strategies in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in presence of Rayleigh fading. More precisely Forward Error Correcting (FEC) and Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) technique are studied for a square grid WSN. ARQ scheme is compared with FEC scheme in terms of Packet Error Rate (PER), energy(More)
