A transmit power control protocol for multipath wireless sensor networks

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This paper proposes a Transmit Power control

    algorithm that increases a sensor network lifetime while

    maintaining throughput. The developed protocol has two main

    purposes: (1) to reduce energy depletion by using transmit power

    control protocol, and, (2) to maintain throughput by using

    multipath routing. A limitation of most previous studies that

    minimize transmit power is that they fail to take into

    consideration the throughput reduction when energy saving

    schemes are employed. Positive results were obtained when the

    proposed scheme was simulated on an IEEE 802.11g wireless

    link.
