Abstract

The energy efficient Data Timed Sending (DTS) protocol enables information transfer from sensor nodes to sink host by choosing the appropriate transmission time of a short packet without data payload. Wake-up Radio (WuR) devices allow asynchronous communication of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) putting the sensor nodes’ main radio modules in continuous sleep state thus increasing energy efficiency. A common characteristic for the DTS protocol and WuR is that they are designed for applications where sensors take sparse measurements, typically one measurement every few minutes. This paper investigates the combination of the DTS protocol with WuR into a single integrated solution. The analytical analysis shows that the DTS protocol significantly reduces the energy consumption when coupled with WuR making this solution suitable for applications with battery powered WSN (e.g. body area WSN).
