Abstract

This work includes an analysis of route initialization and route optimality in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The design of routing protocols for WSNs has not taken full advantage of routing protocols designed for purely ad hoc networks; however, valuable applications are envisioned for WSNs that are both mobile and ad hoc. The potential value of mobile and ad hoc WSNs has motivated this work, which aims to adapt ad hoc routing protocols to WSNs having many-to-one traffic patterns. This work proposes an enhanced route initializing procedure for on-demand routing and evaluates the improvement observed under empirical testing. During route initialization, the enhancement reduced power consum..
