One of the main sources of energy waste in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is idle listening, i.e., nodes consuming energy to sample an idle channel. In this paper, we present a dynamic sleep time control method exploiting known traffic statistics to sample the channel more frequently when it is likely to have traffic and less frequently when it is not. When… CONTINUE READING
