Data Gathering in Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks


Objective: To develop a command based active Actor node command which controls the WSAN network. Network areas of research is growing drastically in the field with the advancement of Wireless sensor network and Wireless sensor and actor network. Methods/Analysis: Data gathering method was used for collecting the information of sensor nodes in a network. Using this method, data gradients values of the nodes are stored efficiently in the cache of the actor node. Efficient path method is used to route the path from actor node to the destination node based on routing. Next load balancing method is used to balance the node efficiency in a WSAN, effectively. Lastly, we used recharge method which recharges the sensor nodes effectively using list available in actor nodes. Findings: Various experiments were conducted based on energy consumption, load balance, packet delivery, power consumption and compared with the WSN. It was shown that the entire command based Actor node gave better results in WSAN's. Application/Improvement: Hence, new commands can be written to merge different types of WSAN’s based on topology structure and energy efficiency.
Keywords: Data Gathering, Gradient, Path and Routing, WSAN’s
