In order to provide reliable data delivery and system management for large-scale wireless sensor networks (WSNs), tracing the route paths of packets in a lightweight manner is crucial and critical. Real-time path tracing technology enables us to observe every data transmission and analyze network dynamics in a fine-grained fashion. Due to resource constraints of WSNs, however, it is difficult, if not impossible, to integrate into each packet with its full path information. We attempt to capture… CONTINUE READING
