Wireless sensor networks with mobile sinks (mWSN) have attracted a lot of attention recently. In an mWSN, each mobile sink can move freely and unpredictably. In this paper, we design two efficient data gathering protocols for mWSNs. The first protocol (called AVRP) adopts Voronoi scoping plus dynamic anchor selection to handle the sink mobility issue. In the second protocol (called TRAIL), the trail of mobile sink is used for guiding packet forwarding as sinks move in the network. In TRAIL, to… CONTINUE READING
