Enhancing the Data Collection Rate of Tree-Based Aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks
— What is the fastest rate at which we can collect a stream of aggregated data from a set of wireless sensors organized as a tree? We explore a hierarchy of techniques using realistic simulation models to address this question. We begin by considering TDMA scheduling on a single channel, reducing the original problem to minimizing the number of time slots needed to schedule each link of the aggregation tree. The second technique is to combine the scheduling with transmission power control to reduce the effects of interference. To better cope with interference, we then study the impact of utilizing multiple frequency channels by introducing a simple receiver-based frequency and time scheduling approach. We find that for networks of about a hundred nodes, the use of multi-frequency scheduling can suffice to eliminate most of the interference. The data collection rate then becomes limited not by interference, but by the maximum degree of the routing tree. Therefore we consider finall...
