An Energy-Efficient Multi-layered Data Forwarding Scheme for Large Scale Wireless Sensor Networks


Energy conservation is the primary concern in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In most applications nodes are randomly deployed in the sensing field. Therefore, it is impracticable to replace their energy sources. Hence, energy efficient routing is necessary in order to prolong network life time several times. In the proposed work we utilize an Energy Efficient Data Forwarding scheme (EEMDF) to route the data effectively in multilayered architecture in large scale wireless sensor networks. We employ the energy metrics to discover the optimal path for routing the aggregated data. Specifically, we will analyze the network life time and energy consumption for the proposed work. Performance evaluation is done by simulation which shows the effectiveness of the work carried out so far. 
Keywords: Energy Efficiency, Network Life Time, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs)
