In this paper we propose a distributed and scalable algorithm that eliminates congestion within a sensor network, and that ensures the fair delivery of packets to a central node, or base station. We say that fairness is achieved when equal number of packets are received from each node. Since in general we have many sensors transmitting data to the base station, we consider the scenario where we have many-to-one multihop routing, noting that it can easily be extended to unicast or many-to-many… CONTINUE READING
