Abstract

Link estimators are extremely important in dynamic wireless sensor networks for obtaining a good network performance because they drive the decisions made by the routing protocol. Many estimators exist but the quality of their estimation depends on the scenario at hand. In this paper, the impact of the estimator on the network performance is investigated in different networking scenarios. Also the influence of the underlying MAC protocol was evaluated. The evaluation was performed both in simulation and on a real-life testbed.
