How to sleep, control and transfer data in an energy constrained wireless sensor network

Abstract

We propose a communication theoretic framework to model energy consumption in ultra low-power transceivers. We use it to estimate the optimal time split between sleep, control (page, resource allocation etc.) and data transfer modes. We specify the necessary conditions for the sleep duty cycle to minimize energy consumption. We consider practical issues in… (More)
