Enhancing System Lifetime Using Reliable Mac and Routing Over WSNS


Gurpreet Singh , CGC college of Engineering




In the current decade, the areas of sensor design, information technologies, and wireless networks have paved the way for the proliferation of wireless sensor networks. These networks have the potential to provide practical usefulness in developing a large number of applications, including the protection of civil infrastructures, habitat monitoring, health care etc. However, the design of wireless sensor networks introduces formidable challenges. Energy is a scarce resource in the network. However, minimizing energy consumption does not neither necessarily prolong the network's lifetime, nor does it ultimately supports the QoS constraints imposed by the specific applications. The unique characteristics and constraint present many new challenges to the design and implementation of WSNs such as energy conservation, efficient data dissemination and fault tolerance. There are plenty of MAC and routing protocols available for wireless sensor networks. Efficient data dissemination is big challenges for WSNs. Directed diffusion protocol rectifies many problems of efficient data dissemination; reducing the energy consumption of WSNs nodes, robust communication thus increasing the overall network lifetime. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of data dissemination routing protocols under sensor MAC by which we can find out reduction in energy consumption through simulation studies.
