An Application Specific Routing Framework for Wireless Sensor Networks

Pagination or Media Count:
Numerous routing protocols have been proposed for wireless sensor networks, each of which is highly optimized for a certain class of traffic, like real time, reliable sense and disseminate network reprogramming, energy efficiency and so on. However, a typical deployment demands an arbitrary communication pattern that generates multiple traffic types simultaneously. Arguably, no single routing protocol can completely cater to a deployments various flavors. In this paper, a dynamic routing framework is proposed that can replace the traditional routing layer with a collection of routing decisions. Application packets carry a two-bit preamble that uniquely describes the nature of communication sought for. The framework dynamically wires the appropriate routing component from a set of well-defined suite.
