Localized Energy-Aware Broadcast Protocol for Wireless Networks with Directional Antennas
Abstract. We consider broadcast protocols in wireless networks that have limited energy and computation resources. The well-known algorithm, DBIP (Directional Broadcast Incremental Power), which exploits “Incremental Power” philosophy for wireless networks with directional antenna to construct broadcasting tree, provides very good results in terms of energy savings. Unfortunately, its computation is centralized, as the source node needs to know the entire topology of the network. Mobility of nodes or frequent changes in the node activity status (from “active” to “passive” and vice-versa) may cause global changes in topology which must be propagated throughout the network for any centralized solution. This may results in extreme and un-acceptable communication overhead. In this paper, we propose and evaluate a localized energyefficient broadcast protocol, Localized Directional Broadcast Incremental Power Protocol (LDBIP), which employs distributed location information and co...
