Energy efficient communication is a key issue in wireless sensor networks. Common belief is that a multi-hop configuration is the only viable energy efficient technique. In this paper we show that the use of forward error correction techniques in combination with ARQ is a promising alternative. Exploiting the asymmetry between lightweight sensor nodes and a more powerful base station even advanced techniques known from cellular networks can be efficiently applied to sensor networks.
