In a sensor network, usually a large number of sensors transport data messages to a limited number of sinks. Due to this multipoint-to-point communications pattern in general homogeneous sensor networks, the closer a sensor to the sink, the quicker it will deplete its battery. This unbalanced energy depletion phenomenon has become the bottleneck problem to elongate the lifetime of sensor networks. In this paper, we consider the effects of joint relay node deployment and transmission power… CONTINUE READING
