DSERR: Delay Sensitive Energy Efficient Reliable Routing Algorithm

Routing strategies need to strike a balance between responsiveness and energy efficiency. Achieving this balance poses new challenges that do not coalesce either with infrastructure or ad hoc wireless networks performance requirements. Multiple strategies have emerged as a workable solution to the routing problem. Either of these solutions however cater to but one of the many constraints posed by the networks. To address this issue we propose a delay sensitive energy efficient reliable routing (DSERR) algorithm which achieves application specified soft delays with energy scavenging being the foremost concern. We try to provide soft end-to-end (e2e) delay guarantee that is proportional to the distance between the source and destination. Our algorithm uses the per hop greedy selection for soft real-time guarantees as it is impossible to provide hard guarantees in a dynamic network. DSERR presents a stateless architecture providing hop by hop reliability of data delivery to support desired delivery reliability across the sensor network.
