Data Estimation in Sensor Networks Using Physical and Statistical Methodologies
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are employed in many applications in order to collect data. One key challenge is to minimize energy consumption to prolong network lifetime. A scheme of making some nodes asleep and estimating their values according to the other active nodes’ readings has been proved energy-efficient. For the purpose of improving the precision of estimation, we propose two powerful estimation models, Data Estimation using Physical Model (DEPM) and Data Estimation using Statistical Model (DESM). DEPM estimates the values of sleeping nodes by the physical characteristics of sensed attributes, while DESM estimates the values through the spatial and temporal correlations of the nodes. Experimental results on real sensor networks show that the proposed techniques provide accurate estimations and conserve energy efficiently.
