An Adaptive Self-organization Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks
This paper proposes a new self-organization protocol for sensors with low-power battery in wireless sensor networks. In our protocol, sensor networks consist of a hierarchical architecture with a sink, which is a root node, using the spanning tree algorithm. Our protocol utilizes some control messages to construct a hierarchical architecture, and by exchanging the messages between nodes, maintains adaptively the network topology by reorganizing the tree architecture as the network evolves. We perform the simulation to evaluate the performance of our protocol over wireless sensor networks. We provide simulation results comparing our protocol with the conventional approaches. The results show that our protocol outperforms other protocols over a broad range of parameters.
