In linear wireless sensor networks, if the nodes can listen and receive packet at any time, a better balance between energy consumption and delay can be achieved by using opportunistic relay (such as TE-OR). In order to further reduce the network power consumption, the nodes need to be properly in a dormant state, which will affect the performance of opportunistic relay. Taking TE-OR algorithm as an example, this paper studies the effect of sleep on opportunistic relay. The simulation results show that in order to achieve the delay performance of the TE-OR algorithm without sleep, the duty cycle should reach more than 60%. In addition, it is difficult to optimize the energy consumption and delay performance simultaneously for the opportunistic relay with sleep.
