Proposal and Evaluation of an Information Dissemination Method Based on Flooding for Energy Efficiency in Wireless Sensor Networks

Hiroki Oda, Hiroyuki Hisamatsu, and Hiroshi Noborio
Abstract—In recent years, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been attracting increasing attention. Most of the sensor nodes in these types of networks are powered by batteries, which therefore necessitates that information dissemination be energy efficient. In this paper, we propose a new flooding method-based information dissemination method that tackles the issue of energy-efficient information dissemination in WSNs. By interpreting same message broadcasts from an adjacent node to a sending node as an acknowledgment of successful message transmission, we control message broadcasts and decrease the number of messages transmitted and received. We show by means of simulations that, in contrast to the conventional flooding method, our proposed method results in an improvement in the information delivery ratio with only a marginal increase in power consumption when packet loss probability is high. We also show that our proposed method results in less energy consumption in the overall network than the flooding method when the wireless radio range is long.

Index Terms—Wireless sensor network, energy efficiency, information dissemination.
