Lightweight sensing and communication protocols for target enumeration and aggregation
The development of lightweight sensing and communication protocols is a key requirement for designing resource constrained sensor networks. This paper introduces a set of efficient protocols and algorithms, DAM, EBAM, and EMLAM, for constructing and maintaining sensor aggregates that collectively monitor target activity in the environment. A sensor aggregate comprises those nodes in a network that satisfy a grouping predicate for a collaborative processing task. The parameters of the predicate depend on the task and its resource requirements. Since the foremost purpose of a sensor network is to selectively gather information about the environment, the formation of appropriate sensor aggregates is crucial for optimally allocating resources to sensing and communication tasks. This paper makes minimal assumptions about node onboard processing and communication capabilities so as to allow possible implementations on resource-constrained hardware. Factors affecting protocol performance are...
