Designing a sensor network congestion avoidance algorithm is a challenging task due to the application specific nature of these networks. The frequency of event sensing is a deciding factor in the occurence of congestion. Numerous sensors, simultaneously transmitting data, increase the probability of packet drops due to congestion close to the base station(s). In this paper, we propose a novel distributed congestion avoidance algorithm which uses the ratio of the number of downstream and… CONTINUE READING
