Paper Abstract

Disseminating data among sensors is a fundamental operation in energy-constrained wireless sensor networks. We present a gossip-based adaptive protocol for data dissemination to improve energy efficiency of this operation. To overcome the data implosion problems associated with dissemination operation, our protocol uses meta-data to name the data using high-level data descriptors and negotiation to eliminate redundant transmissions of duplicate data in the network. Further, we adapt the gossiping with data aggregation possibilities in sensor networks. We simulated our data dissemination protocol, and compared it to the SPIN protocol. We find that our protocol improves on the energy consumption by about 20% over others, while improving significantly over the data dissemination rate of gossiping.
