Ambient energy from solar, vibration, heat and wind provide alternative energy sources to power sensors and extend the lifetime of wireless sensor networks which have traditionally been powered by batteries. This paper aims to enhance the performance of energy harvesting powered wireless sensor networks in three aspects: relaying, scheduling, and medium access control. To better adapt to the characteristics of energy harvesting, an asynchronous receiver-initiated duty-cycling approach is… CONTINUE READING
