The Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) have been envisioned to help in numerous monitoring applications. Pulsed battery discharge from the nodes prolongs the battery capacity as compared to constant discharge. Idle time between the pulses of discharge helps in recovering the discharged battery capacity. In the hierarchical routing protocol, cluster head nodes expend much higher energy than other nodes without any idle time. In this paper, we are proposing a Hierarchical-Battery Aware Routing (H-BAR… CONTINUE READING
