Self-Learning Routing for ZigBee Wireless Mesh Networks

ZigBee is defined to support low-ratewireless personal area networks (WPANs). It supports tree and mesh routing. Observing that both routing mechanisms have their pros and cons, this paper proposes aSelf-Learning Routing (SLR) protocol, which inherits the low overhead of tree routing and the path efficiency of mesh routing. SLR contains an overhearing and a… CONTINUE READING
