Keywords Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless Sensor Networks are comprised of a vast number of ultra-small, autonomous computing and communication devices, with restricted energy, that co-operate to accomplish a large sensing task. In this work: a) We propose extended versions of two data propagation protocols for such networks: the Sleep-Awake Probabilistic Forwarding Protocol (SW-PFR) and the Hierarchical Threshold sensitive Energy Efficient Network protocol (H-TEEN). These non-trivial extensions improve the performance of the original protocols, by introducing sleep-awake periods in the PFR protocol to save energy, and introducing a hierarchy of clustering in the TEEN protocol to better cope with large networks, b) We implemented the two protocols and performed an extensive simulation comparison of various important measures of their performance with a focus on energy consumption, c) We investigate in detail the relative advantages and disadvantages of each protocol, d) We discuss a possible hybrid combination of the two protocols towards optimizing certain goals.
