Data aggregation is a fundamental yet time-consuming task in wireless sensor networks. We focus on the latency part of data aggregation. Previously, the data aggregation algorithm of least latency [1] has a latency bound of (Delta - 1)R, where Delta is the maximum degree and R is the network radius. Since both Delta and R could be of the same order of the network size, this algorithm can still have a rather high latency. In this paper, we designed an algorithm based on maximal independent sets…

This paper proposes a centralised algorithm to aggregate data from all sources in Olog²n time slots where n is the total number of nodes and uses round scheduling, topology construction and non-linear power assignment as the main techniques.
Efficient Data Aggregation in Multi-Hop WSNs
TLDR
This paper considers a single one-off query which requires a subset of source nodes V to send data to a distinguished sink node, and proposes a delay-efficient algorithm that produces a collision-free schedule and theoretically proves that the delay achieved by the algorithm is nearly a small constant factor of the optimum.
