Distributed routing for signal detection in wireless sensor networks

Wanzhi Qiu, Efstratios Skafidas



We study the problem of energy-efficient routing for signal detection in wireless sensor networks. Generic routing protocols use networking-centric measures such as minimum hop or minimum energy to establish routes. These schemes do not take into account the performance of application-specific algorithms that is achievable from the data collected by the nodes along the routes. Routing protocols for signal detection have recently been proposed to facilitate joint optimization of detection performance and energy efficiency by developing metrics that connect detection performance with energy consumption of each link along the routes. In existing routing for signal detection (RSD) schemes, howev..
