sensornetSensor Net Routing

Ad hoc networks of tiny wireless sensors, working in unison, sensing and disseminating information, are expected to have numerous applications in the near future. Given their wide range of potential applications, such as early forest fire detection, sophisticated earthquake monitoring in dense urban areas, and battlefield surveillance, wireless sensor networks are poised to become an integral part of our lives.

We have observed that instead of being concerned with the total bits transmitted within the network or the whole energy consumed during the network's lifetime, what the users of sensor networks care about most is the total information the network delivers about the underlying field (within the constraint of the battery power available in each node). Therefore, the ultimate goal for our work on this project is to maximize the total information delivered by the wireless sensor network during its lifetime.
