Context-aware sensors and data muling

  title={Context-aware sensors and data muling},
  author={Suan Khai Chong and Ian McCauley and Seng Wai Loke and Shonali Krishnaswamy},
Efficient collection of data represents one of the key challe nges for sparsely deployed wireless sensor networks, due to issues t hat include heavily imposing particular nodes to relay sampled data and also dra ining sensor energy due to possible transmissions over long distances. A possib le olution is to use existing data carriers, also known as data mules, in the envi ronment. Though the application is often that of delay-tolerant networks, the t echnique is cost-efficient as it maximizes… CONTINUE READING
