Energy-constrained wireless sensor networks have conflicting requirements between the need to communicate, and the desire to avoid idle listening and thus save energy. Beneath this simple observation lies a complex design space that encompasses all layers of the radio through application. Broad design principles include the desire to exploit resources… CONTINUE READING
