Abstract

One of the main targets related to Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is to reduce power consumption of nodes and of the whole network. An ideal WSN should be networked, scalable, fault-tolerant, energy-aware, and also smart and efficient. Unfortunately, however, this is not always true. The basic idea of the proposal is that senders use a heuristic approach to select the sub-optimal next hop in order to reach just one sink, considering some key requirements such as general performance (QoS and security), efficiency, trustability, high computational power and energy-aware behaviour. Our model tries to satisfy the need for reaching the nearest sink node, considering a trade-off between the shortest path and heuristic decisions, in a top-level strategy based on a heuristic approach in order to reduce the overall power consumption of nodes of the network.
