We consider scenarios in which an event, such as a mobile node arriving to collect data or a data-request arriving at a node via the sensor network, initiates the collection of one packet of data from each node in the surrounding cluster of nodes. The node requesting the data broadcasts its identity and purpose to the cluster and assumes the role of clusterhead. This broadcast message is also used to synchronize all nodes in the cluster, which covers an area with a radius of several hundred… CONTINUE READING
