Objectives: To design a transmission power control (TPC) algorithm for the Internet of Things (IoT) based Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) such that the energy cost is reduced and the expected throughput is increased. Method: In this study, a Game theory based adaptive transmit power control (GT-ATPC) algorithm for IoT-WSN is proposed. In this algorithm, for each sender, the initial transmission power level (TPL) is determined from the difference of Received Signal Strength (RSS) measurements at the base station (BS). The TPL is adaptively adjusted by means of Game theory. For each sender, the expected throughput, energy cost and connectivity values are estimated from which a utility function is derived. Findings: By simulation results, it has been shown that GT-ATPC attains 37% higher throughput with 57% reduced energy cost and 30% lesser overhead when compared with GTS-PM approach. Novelty: The TPL of a node is adjusted based on the estimated values of utility function such that the throughput and connectivity is high and energy cost is less.
