Prolonging Network Lifetime via A Controlled Mobile Sink in Wireless Sensor Networks

Liang, Weifa; Luo, Jun; Xu, Xu (Grace)


In this paper we explore the mobility of a mobile sink in a wireless sensor network (WSN) to prolong the network lifetime. Since the mechanical movement of mobile sink is driven by petrol and/or electricity, the total travel distance of the mobile sink should be bounded. To minimize the data loss during the transition of the mobile sink from its current location to its next location, its moving distance must be restricted. Also, considering the overhead on a routing tree construction at each...[Show more]
