Minimization of Route Power in Wireless Sensor Networks

What is it about?

Wireless Sensor Networks is the foundation for Internet of Things. They are adhoc networks primarily operated in hostile regions where human intervention is not possible / difficult. The sensor nodes work on batteries that are usually replaceable. Hence it is very important that the node battery, and hence the entire network performs efficiently for a longer period. The paper throws light on the aspect of route power minimization by optimizing the number of hops in a route.

Why is it important?

We have focused on route power minimization in a wireless sensor network. Significant results are: 1. Optimization of the number of hops in the route from the source to the destination. 2. Use of convex optimization to minimize the route power under wireless channel quality constraints.
