Joint scheduling and routing with power control for centralized wireless sensor networks - 2018

Research Area:  Wireless Sensor Networks


We consider a TDMA-based multi-hop wireless sensor network, where nodes send data to a sink, which is aware of received powers at all receivers; the sink is responsible for creating the network topology and assigning time slots to links. Under this centralized approach, we propose two algorithms that jointly define the tree topology connecting nodes to the sink, and assign time slots, avoiding any packet loss. In contrast with previous works, the proposed algorithms accurately account for interference effects; when evaluating the signal-to-interference ratio to establish the tree and schedule transmissions, we consider the sum of all actual interfering signals, a fact of relevance for networks with increasing number of nodes. Optimal selection of transmit powers, minimizing energy consumption, is also applied. Our algorithms are compared to a benchmark solution and other proposals from the literature; it is shown that they bring to better radio resource utilization, higher throughput and lower energy consumption, while keeping the average delay limited.
