WSN is a self organized network consisting of nodes. These nodes can have a small degree of movement due to medium on which they are deployed, like the sensor deployed on ocean water to detect conditions like tsunami. Since the nodes are moving, it is very difficult to maintain a reliable connection and when congestion happens in this network. Many congestion control protocols view only the current conditions and position of nodes while making the congestion control decisions and neglect the… 



Cluster-based congestion control for sensor networks

This paper presents COMUT (COngestion control for MUlti-class Traffic), a distributed cluster-based mechanism for supporting multiple classes of traffic in sensor networks based on the self-organization of the network into clusters, each of which autonomously and proactively monitors congestion within its localized scope.

Sink-to-Sensors Congestion Control Strategy

This paper proposes a scalable, distributed approach that addresses congestion from the sink to the sensors in a sensor network and shows that it performs significantly better over a basic approach which does not provide any congestion control.

A new queue based congestion control protocol with priority support (QCCP-PS), using the queue length as an indication of congestion degree, which has a good achieved priority close to the ideal and near-zero packet loss probability.

Event-to-sink reliable transport in wireless sensor networks

A new reliable transport scheme for WSN, the event-to-sink reliable transport (ESRT) protocol, is presented in this paper, a novel transport solution developed to achieve reliable event detection in WSN with minimum energy expenditure.

Congestion control and fairness in wireless sensor networks

A distributed congestion control algorithm for tree based communications in wireless sensor networks, that seeks to adaptively assign a fair and efficient transmission rate to each node, that acquires a significantly high goodput of around 95% of the actual transmission rate.

This paper proposes a dynamic adaptive strategy for minimizing the number of ACK packets in transit and mitigating spurious retransmissions, which not only improves bandwidth utilization but also reduces power consumption by retransmitting much less than a regular TCP does.

This paper investigates the use of fuzzy logic theory for assisting the TCP error detection mechanism in ad hoc networks by presenting an elementary fuzzy logic engine as an intelligent technique for discriminating packet loss due to congestion from packet loss by wireless induced errors.

The utility of explicit rate-based flow control in mobile ad hoc networks

This paper proposes an end-to-end rate-based flow control scheme (called EXACT), where a flow's allowed rate is explicitly conveyed from intermediate routers to the end-hosts in each data packet's special control header, and shows that EXACT outperforms TCP in terms of fairness and efficiency.

PSFQ: a reliable transport protocol for wireless sensor networks

It is shown through simulation and experimentation that PSFQ can out perform existing related techniques and is highly responsive to the various error conditions experienced in wireless sensor networks, respectively.

This study studies the behavior of TFRC (TCP Friendly Rate Control) over a wide range of MANET scenarios, in terms of throughput fairness and smoothness, and shows that while TFRC is able to maintain throughput smoothness in MANET, it obtains less throughput than the competing TCP flows.
