Abstract

Self-stabilizing algorithms (SSA) are defined on the assumption that either the system’s topology is fixed over time or topology changes are isolated events occurring at a very low rate. These assumptions are not valid in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) where link qualities change rapidly. The contribution of this paper is a neighborhood management protocol (NMP) providing a neighborhood relation sufficiently stable to apply existing SSAs in WSNs.
