Cluster-based Energy-aware Data Sharing Scheme to Support a Mobile Sink in Solar-Powered Wireless Sensor Networks
Lee, Hong Seob; Yi, Jun Min; Kim, Jaeung; Noh, Dong Kun;
In contrast with battery-based wireless sensor networks (WSNs), solar-powered WSNs can operate for a longtime assuming that there is no hardware fault. Meanwhile, a mobile sink can save the energy consumption of WSN, but its ineffective movement may incur so much energy waste of not only itself but also an entire network. To solve this problem, many approaches, in which a mobile sink visits only on clustering-head nodes, have been proposed. But, the clustering scheme also has its own problems such as energy imbalance and data instability. In this study, therefore, a cluster-based energy-aware data-sharing scheme (CE-DSS) is proposed to effectively support a mobile sink in a solar-powered WSN. By utilizing the redundant energy efficiently, CE-DSS shares the gathered data among cluster-heads, while minimizing the unexpected black-out time. The simulation results show that CE-DSS increases the data reliability as well as conserves the energy of the mobile sink.
