Energy Efficient MAC-ROUTE Cross-Layer Technique with Competent Scheduling Duty Cycle Protocol for a Multi-Hop WSN

P. M. Prathibhavani and T. G. Basavaraju
Abstract—In Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) sensor nodes are compactly placed and the topology of network changes regularly. Sensor nodes are tiny devices limited in power, computation capacity, memory, sensing range and mobility. Because of wireless and specific application nature of Wireless Sensor Network, traditional layered protocol architecture is found to be less efficient, thus need of cross layer design. This paper explores to optimize the energy consumption across physical, MAC and network layers to prolong the life time of WSN. Even though Multi-hop Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (MLEACH) is cross layer protocol uses contention free TDMA as a MAC layer, which is difficult to schedule packets if the network is densely deployed and high contention because of more control overhead and loss of data packets. In this paper, we design and implement Energy efficient MAC-ROUTE cross layer technique with competent scheduling duty cycle to address high contention in dense network by reducing control overhead and loss of data packet called Cross-MLEACH. The given mathematical model and simulation results shows that Cross-MLEACH design optimizes energy consumption across MAC and network layers and provides better performance than MLEACH in terms of network life time and significant delay using MATLAB.

Index Terms—WSN, MAC-ROUTE, MLEACH, Cross-MLEACH, Cross layer.
