This paper introduces a light-weight packet delivery approach called Packet-based Cooperative Diversity to improve the reliability of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Our approach is based on the principle of cooperative diversity and fail-over concepts of Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID), by grouping, gathering, and rejecting redundant packets with the unique packet ID per message. It is suitable for nodes which require high reliability in message delivery but have enhanced energy… CONTINUE READING
