The imminent growth of user-centric, pervasive sensing environments promotes sink mobility in an increasing number of event-based, sensor network applications including rescue missions, intrusion detection and smart buildings. In these settings, one of the most critical challenges toward supporting quality of service, is effective distributed congestion avoidance. Congestion control techniques have been proposed in sensor networks mostly in the context of a static sink. In our work, we study… CONTINUE READING
