Minimum energy accumulative routing in wireless networks
— In this paper, we propose to address the energy efficient routing problem in multi-hop wireless networks with accumulative relay. In the accumulative relay model, partially overheard signals of previous transmissions for the same packet are used to decode it using a maximal ratio combiner technique [1]. Therefore, additional energy saving can be achieved over traditional energy efficient routing. The idea of accumulative relay originates from the study of relay channel in information theory with a main focus on network capacity. It has been independently applied to minimum-energy broadcasting in [2], [3]. We formulate the minimum energy accumulative routing problem (MEAR) and study it. We obtain hardness of approximation results counterbalanced with good heuristic solutions which we validate using simulations. Without energy accumulation, the classic shortest path (SP) algorithm finds the minimum energy path for a source-destination pair. However, we show that with energy accumu...
