In-network processing is touted as a key technology to eliminate data redundancy and minimize data transmission, which are crucial to saving energy in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Specifically, operators participating in in-network processing are mapped to nodes in a sensor network. They receive data from downstream operators, process them and route the output to either the upstream operator or the sink node. The objective of operator tree placement is to minimize the total energy consumed… CONTINUE READING
