On Scheduling Sensor Networks

Lloyd G. Greenwald and Harish Sethu

The emerging technology of wireless sensor networks holds the promise of facilitating a diverse array of real-time decision support applications in environmental monitoring, military deployments, and robotic explorations. Such networks consist of a distributed set of sensor nodes, each of which typically uses battery-operated sensing and computing devices and a low-power radio transmitter and receiver. These sensor nodes sense, compute, and communicate with each other to co-operatively accomplish, typically, a common set of tasks. Effective integration of computation and communication in sensor networks is a challenging problem that will draw from as well as contribute to the fields of parallel and distributed computing, network protocol design, and stochastic optimization.
