Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are generally used for harsh environments involving military surveillance, emergency response, and habitat monitoring. Due to severe resource constraints in sensor nodes, including memory space, energy storage, and communication bandwidth, a need arises for an in-network aggregation of sensory data. We propose a sensor- to-sink transport protocol, which is suitable for data aggregation and provides reliable upstream packet delivery by dynamically configuring… CONTINUE READING
