Abstract

The power awareness issue is the primary concern within the domain of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Most power dissipation ocurrs during communication, thus routing protocols in WSNs mainly aim at power conservation. Moreover, a routing protocol should be scalable, so that its effectiveness does not degrade as the network size increases. In response to these issues, this work describes the development of an efficient routing protocol, named SHPER (Scaling Hierarchical Power Efficient Routing).
Keywords: wireless sensor networks; routing protocols; energy efficiency; hierarchical routing; scalability wireless sensor networks; routing protocols; energy efficiency; hierarchical routing; scalability
