—We consider a large-scale smart metering system based on intermittent receiver driven transmission and potential-based routing, both of which have been developed for wireless sensor networks. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of such a system by simulations and show that it is possible to collect 99% of data within 10 minutes in a system of 1600 nodes.
