PAHR: Power-aware Ad Hoc Routing for Microsensor Networks
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
"This proposal suggests an ad hoc routing algorithm that minimizes power consumption due to data transmission (and reception) of the individual nodes of a microsensor network. The PAHR algorithm borrows from the existing body of research intogeneral-purpose ad hoc routing algorithms as well as special-purpose routing algorithms designed to extend battery-powered-network longevity. During the Phase I the PAHR algorithm will evolve from its current concept stage to a formal description, andmodeling and simulation will be performed to validate the algorithm's utility. The PAHR algorithm has the potential to significantly extend the lifetime of any network whose nodes are battery powered but not particularly mobile. While remote-sensingapplications are the most-obvious application, any ad hoc, battery-powered enviornment where the nodes are randomly placed once, but not moved, could benefit from the technology."
