PEGASIS : Power-Efficient Gathering in Sensor Information Systems

Authors(1) :-Alpesh R. Sankaliya

Sensor network consisting of nodes with limited battery power and wireless communications are deployed to collect useful information from the field. The main idea in PEGASIS is for each node to receive from and transmit to close neighbors and take turns being the leader for transmission to the BS. This approach distributes the energy load evenly among the sensor nodes in the network. Sensor nodes are randomly deployed in the sensor field, and therefore, the ith node is at a random location. The nodes will be organized to form a chain, which can either be accomplished by the sensor nodes themselves using a greedy algorithm. The algorithm to resolve the unbalanced energy consumption problem caused by long distance data transmission of some nodes in a chain formed by the greedy algorithm.
