Multipath adaptive periodic threshold-sensitive energy efficient protocol for wireless sensor networks
Wireless sensor networks enable monitoring and analysis of the environment by using a number of sensor nodes to collect the required data and send it to the user applications. These applications are becoming very important in many areas such as sensing and controlling of temperature. The wireless sensor nodes use routing protocols for sending data between the nodes of the system as required by the application. These routing protocols vary in their effect on the node power consumption, the node life time and the system scalability. We propose a Multipath Adaptive Periodic Threshold-sensitive Energy Efficient Network Protocol (MAPTEEN). This routing protocol allows multiple routes for the information to reach a certain destination. The multipath approach increases the reliability of the network, decreases the power consumption and increases the life time of the network.
