A Survey on Energy Saving Technology of Wireless Sensor Network

Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST,volume 258)


Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have important applications in many fields such as medical treatment and industry. A WSN is typically consists of a large number of sensor nodes that rely on a limited supply of power in many applications. Therefore, improving the energy efficiency of wireless sensor networks has become an important research topic. This paper analyzes the principle of energy consumption of each component unit of wireless sensor node, and studies the energy saving technology and energy saving design idea of MAC protocol from the data link layer and network layer of network model.
