A Hop-by-hop Cross-layer Congestion Control Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract

Congestions in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) could potentially cause packet loss, throughput impairment and energy waste. To address this issue, a hop-by-hop crosslayer congestion control scheme (HCCC) built on contention-based MAC protocol is proposed in this paper. According to MAC-layer channel information including buffer occupancy ratio and… (More)
