A Reconfiguration Method for Preserving Network Bandwidth and Nodes Energy of Wireless Sensor Networks


Abstract

In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and even in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, the reconfiguration of sensor variables is an important problem when the role of a system (or application) program’s sensor nodes needs to be adjusted in a particular situation. For example, the outdoor temperature in a volcanic zone, which is usually updated in a system every 10 s, should be updated every 1 s during an emergency situation. To solve this problem, this paper proposes a novel approach based on changing only a set of sensor variables in a part of a program, rather than modifying the entire program, in order to reduce both network congestion and the sensor nodes’ battery consumption. To validate our approach, we demonstrate an implementation of a proof-of-concept prototype system and also present results of comparative studies showing the performance and effectiveness of our proposed method.
