Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) consist of miniature devices with sensing, computation and wireless communication capabilities. They are typically designed for hostile environments, where recharging a node is impractical. Thus, energy efficiency is vital. For substantial energy savings, cross-layer information sharing and in-network processing among sensors have emerged as promising solutions. In this paper, we propose an energy-aware cross-layer data-gathering protocol for WSNs, termed RMC. By… CONTINUE READING
