The design of routing protocols for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has been traditionally tackled by assuming battery-powered sensors, in which minimizing the power consumption was the main objective. Advances in technology and the ability to harvest energy from the environment has enabled self-sustaining systems and thus diminish the significance of network lifetime considerations in the design of WSNs. Although WSNs operated by energy-harvesting sensors are not limited by network lifetime, they still pose new design challenges due to the unstable and uncertain amount of energy that can be harvested from the environment. In this paper, we propose a new protocol for energy-harvesting sensor networks that uses adaptive transmission power to maintain the network connectivity, and distributes the traffic load on the network. Based on local information, each node dynamically adjusts its transmission power in order to maximize the network’s end-to-end performance. The simulation results indicate that the proposed protocol keeps the network connected at most of the times by using an efficient power management, outperforming greedy forwarding and dynamic duty cycle protocols in terms of packet delivery ratio, delay, and power management.

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are becoming more and more integrated into industrial and domestic systems such as transport, home automation, etc. However, due to their own characteristics, there are several issues which affect their performance. Some of the issues are briefly presented, but the emphasis is on energy constraint. Energy harvesting as one of the sources of energy in WSNs is found to be the most reliable, and this review is about energy management schemes for this source. The ener...

This paper presents the simple Internet of Things enabler (SITE), a smart home solution that allows users to specify and centrally control Internet of Things smart objects. Unlike most existing systems, SITE supports End-User Development. Hence, it defines a simple language for the specification of control rules for smart objects. It also provides a user interface to graphically illustrate the data received from smart objects. To assess the usability of SITE, we conduct an empirical study involv...

A well-designed energy-efficient routing protocol is an indispensable part for prolonging the lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) because a sensor node usually has limited energy. Many research efforts are contributed on routing design in WSNs. With the development of green technology, the energy harvesting technique is being applied to real WSNs. Therefore, existing routing protocols are not suitable for such new WSNs with energy harvesting. In this paper, we concentrate on designing a ...

We consider cluster-based routing protocols for energy harvesting wireless sensor networks. Since the energy harvesting process does not match the real energy demand, sensor nodes suffer from occasional energy shortages, especially when they serve as cluster head (CH) nodes. To address this problem, we propose a cluster-based routing protocol referred to as distance-and-energy-aware routing with energy reservation (DEARER). The DEARER protocol encourages nodes with high energy-arrival rate or be...

Recently, energy harvesting technology has been integrated into wireless sensor networks to ameliorate the nodes’ energy limitation problem. In theory, the wireless sensor node equipped with an energy harvesting module can work permanently until hardware failures happen. However, due to the change of power supply, the traditional hierarchical network routing protocol can not be effectively adopted in energy harvesting wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we improve the Low-Energy Adaptive Cl...

Wireless sensor network (WSN) has been a promising technology and widely involved in environmental monitoring. The limited energy supply associated with WSNs impacts the lifetime of the network and the energy constraints make it difficult for sensor nodes to harvest environmental energy. This drawback on the performance of WSN is improved through routing and clustering techniques for environmental energy harvesting and termed as harvesting wireless sensor network (EH-WSN).

The photoelectric hybrid network has been proposed to achieve the ultrahigh bandwidth, lower delay, and less power consumption for chip multiprocessor (CMP) systems. However, a large number of optical elements used in optical networks-on-chip (ONoCs) generate high transmission loss which will influence network performance severely and increase power consumption. In this paper, the Dijkstra algorithm is adopted to realize adaptive routing with minimum transmission loss of link and reduce the outp...

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) consist of multiple sensor nodes, each of which has the ability to collect, receive and send data. However, irregular data sources can lead to severe network congestion. To solve this problem, the Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) controller is introduced into the congestion control mechanism to control the queue length of messages in nodes. By running the PID algorithm on cluster head nodes, the effective collection of sensor data is realized. In addition, a...
