Energy-aware routing is important in multi-hop wireless networks that are operated by battery power, e.g., wireless sensor networks. To maximize the network survivability, the energy efficiency of paths must be taken into account for route selection. Simple heuristics such as choosing paths with minimal energy consumption do not perform well, because the energy of the nodes on such paths may deplete quickly. The issue is particularly serious for the networks with regular traffic pattern as in… CONTINUE READING
