Scheduling of Wireless Links for Data Collection in Sensor Networks

Description Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are made up of small, processed sensor nodes that can communicate unrestrictedly over short distances. These sensors are used to collect data from the physical world and are usually composed of a limited power source (battery) and a communication component (radio transceiver) used to establish wireless transmission links for information exchange. The purpose of this project is to investigate and propose the development of optimization algorithms to solve the problem of wireless link escalation in sensor networks. The problem is to minimize the total time required to collect a set of data from multiple sensor nodes and destined for one or more destination nodes, ensuring interference-free and low-power transmission links. While data collection is a key operational challenge for WSNs, interference-free scheduling completed in the shortest possible time will benefit network performance and, when built with low-power links, will also benefit the energy efficiency of wireless communication .
