Energy-Efficient Dynamic Query Routing Tree Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Networks
H. Si Gwan Kim. International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications(IJACSA) (2012)
To exploit in answering queries generated by the sink for the sensor networks, we propose an efficient routing protocol called energy-efficient dynamic routing tree (EDRT) algorithm. The idea of EDRT is to maximize in-network processing opportunities using the parent nodes and sibling nodes. In-network processing reduces the number of message transmission by partially aggregating results of an aggregate query in intermediate nodes, or merging the results in one message. This results in reduction of communication cost. Our experimental results based on simulations prove that our proposed method can reduce message transmissions more than query specific routing tree (QSRT) and flooding-based routing tree (FRT).
