Given a fixed energy budget for the operation of wireless ad hoc networks, we show that supplying it in quanta to the nodes over time, rather than all of it initially, can yield a significant improvement in the network lifetime, under the same traffic conditions and performance requirements. The network lifetime is defined as the time by which the first… CONTINUE READING
