Hybrid sensor networks: a small world

  title={Hybrid sensor networks: a small world},
  author={Gaurav Sharma and Ravi Mazumdar},
In this paper, we investigate the use of limited infrastructure, in the form of wires, for improving the energy efficiency of a wireless sensor network. We call such a sensor network - a wireless sensor network with a limited infrastructural support - a hybrid sensor network. The wires act as short cuts to bring down the average hop count of the network, resulting in a reduced energy dissipation per node. Our results indicate that adding a few wires to a wireless sensor network can not only… CONTINUE READING
