On effect of the communication factors on the protocol's goal availability service in high performance real-time Wireless Sensor Networks

Damian Rusinek, Bogdan Księżopolski, Zbigniew Kotulski


Recently, many real-time protocols for wireless sensor networks have been presented. Most of them implement hierarchical topologies with high performance routing sensors that forward big amount of data. In this paper authors check the influence of the communication factors on availability service and the speed of radio communication. The considered settings of sensors can help build effective real-time wireless sensor network protocols with high sampling frequencies.
