Abstract:From our experiences with energy-efficient network design, we observed that: (1) idling energy should be the primary target for energy conservation, (2) any energy conservation solution cost prohibitive with increasing overhead, and (3) minimizing energy consumption does not necessarily improve network lifetime. Therefore, in the second part of the thesis, we formulate solutions to each of these problems. To reduce idling energy, we propose a bulk-communication protocol that achieves high energy savings from using a high-power radio for data communication and a low-power radio for network maintenance. To reduce control and data overhead, respectively, we present two protocols: (1) adaptive route recovery and (2) probability-based broadcast forwarding. Finally, to balance energy consumption in the network, we propose re-distributing traffic locally based on the remaining energy of nodes.
