Abstract

As a common train of thought to save energy, sleep scheduling which turns sensor nodes on and off has become a significant method to prolong the lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In recent years, many related sleep scheduling mechanisms with diverse emphases and application areas for WSNs have been proposed. This paper reviews those mechanisms and further classifies them in different taxonomies as well as provides an insight into them.
