Multipath Routing With Novel Packet Scheduling Approach In Wireless Sensor Networks

Mary Cherian and T. R. Gopalakrishnan Nair

Abstract—Wireless sensor networks sense and monitor real-time events. They supervise a geographic area where a phenomenon is to be monitored. The data in sensor networks have different levels of priority and hence their criticality differs. In order to keep up the real time commitment, the applications need higher transmission rates and reliability in information delivery. In this work we propose a multipath routing algorithm which enables the reliable delivery of data. By controlling the scheduling rate, it is possible to prevent congestion and packet loss in the network. The algorithm provides an efficient way to prevent the packet loss at each node. This results in congestion management in the sensor networks. This protocol prevents packet clustering and provides smoothness to the traffic. Through monitoring and controlling the scheduling rate the flow control and congestion control are managed.

Index Terms—Multipath routing, prioritizer, scheduling rate, scheduling unit, wireless sensor networks (WSN)
