A Case for Node-Local Runtime Parameter Adaptation in Wireless Sensor Networks
2014 (English)In: Proc. 10th Swedish National Computer Networking Workshop, 2014Conference paper, Poster (Other academic)
The challenges posed to wireless sensor networks by the environments they are deployed cannot always be predicted beforehand. Therefore, adaptive behavior at the run-time may be required to achieve good reliability and energy-efficiency. We present a node-local runtime adaptation algorithm that adapts the over-the-air message encoding based on presence of weak links and external interference in the immediate neighborhood of the node. Evaluation with a network simulator shows that this algorithm leads to significant network-wide reduction of radio duty cycle under specific radio transmission failure models.
