Directional Antennas for Convergecast in Wireless Sensor Networks: Are They a Good Idea?

Abstract

Directional antennas improve network performance by increasing the communication range and alleviating contention as proven, e.g., in cellular and ad-hoc networks. In principle, one may reap similar benefits in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), where energy concerns and reliability requirements make this antenna technology even more desirable. However, it is… (More)
