Sentry-Based Power Management in Wireless Sensor Networks
This paper presents a sentry-based approach to power management in wireless sensor networks for applications such as intruder detection and tracking. To minimize average power consumption while maintaining sufficient node density for coarse sensing, nodes are partitioned dynamically into two sets: sentries and non-sentries. Sentry nodes provide sufficient coverage for continuous monitoring and basic communication services. Non-sentry nodes sleep for designated periods of time to conserve power, and switch to full power only when needed to provide more refined sensing for tracking. Non-sentry nodes check for beacons from sentry nodes to determine when they should remain on. Experimental results are presented demonstrating trade-offs between power savings and tracking performance for a network of seventeen nodes using the first implementation of a basic sentry-based power management scheme. The paper concludes with a brief description of a full set of power-management services being i...
