Optimization Issues and Algorithms for Wireless Sensor Networks With Mobile Sink

Jan 01, 2008

Download Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are a new kind of ad-hoc wireless network that will probably bring new progress on the paradigm of pervasive computing. These networks may be composed by hundreds or even thousands autonomous devices, the so called sensor nodes. The main aim of these researches is to extend the network lifetime, since, in the operational environment, to charge or to exchange the sensor nodes’ batteries is probably an impossible/unfeasible activity. This paper papers design communication protocols to support mobility in WSN, even though little attention has been given to the motion control problem.
