This paper investigates strategies to achieve collectively coordination in sensor networks, with extremely limited complexity. We propose and compare novel backoff mechanisms to achieve adaptively the desired scheduling among a number of sensors that contend for their access to the wireless medium. The method considered models the interactions among sensors as that of pulse coupled oscillators (PCO), which have been widely studied in mathematical biology to capture the interaction among… CONTINUE READING
