A Theoretical Framework of Lifetime Prediction of Wireless Sensor Networks

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 836)


Lifetime of a network induces a direct trade-off against the quality of service. Providing more energy can increase more quality of service but might decrease lifetime. Sensors in Wireless Sensor Networks have a variety of purposes, functions and capabilities with severe energy constraints. Due to the scarcity of energy resources, network organizational design imposes a challenging impact on energy consumption, which leads to an effect on operational lifetime of the entire network. Operational Lifetime becomes one of the precious context of merit of wireless sensor network which depends on the applications. Among different interpretations of the lifetime of sensor networks, it includes the time until the network is disconnected in two or more partitions. Hence, the application region might not be observed by one sensor node only. Therefore this observed region needs to partition into number of sub regions or clusters and instead of a single, a few number of sensors are required to cover the application area. In this paper we address one probabilistic prediction based approach for sensor network lifetime to determine in what situation this breaking into sub regions or clustering is required.
