We consider the problem of inter-cluster routing between cluster heads via intermediate sensor nodes in a hierarchical sensor network. Sensor nodes having limited and unreplenishable power resources, both path length and path energy cost are important metrics affecting sensor lifetime. In this paper, we model the formation of length and energy constrained paths using a game theoretic paradigm. The Nash equilibrium of our routing game corresponds to the optimal length-energy-constrained (LEC… CONTINUE READING
