SSAAR: Enhanced Spatial Reusability for Optimal Path Selection in Wireless Sensor Networks


The advancements made in the wireless sensor networks have enabled the research communities to delve into the study of spatial reusability concepts. Due to the restricted capacity in wireless links, it is a significant to select the optimal route for packet transmission. The achievement of optimal route selection is verified by the high end-to-end throughput rate. Routing in WSNs is very challenging due to the inherent characteristics that distinguish these networks from other wireless networks like mobile ad hoc networks or cellular networks. In this paper, we have proposed an improved spatial reusability process using Single Path and Anypath Routing Protocols (SSAAR). The task of single path routing is to minimize the cost of the nodes in wireless links, whereas the task of any path routing is to assists the intermediate node who overhears the packet to participate in packet forwarding. Experimental results have shown the efficacy of our proposed work in terms of cost minimization functionalities.
