Abstract

Currently, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are not used in application scenarios that require timely reaction to sensor data for two main reasons. First, there is no exact method to dimension a wireless sensor network before deployment such that both delay and reliability are guaranteed. Second, most existing network components aim to be energy efficient while a few aim to minimize delay. However, none have considered a deterministic performance regarding both delay and reliability. Given the required message transfer delay D and reliability R, our proposed framework can dimension and then operate a WSN to satisfy these requirements.
