Abstract

Reliability is an important issue in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Reliable transmission of data in WSNs is the basic of successful network operation. In this paper, we firstly define the evaluation methods for reliability in WSNs in terms of evaluation metrics and recovery ways. The technologies to improve reliability for WSNs are summed up in several classifications: retransmission, redundancy, hybrid method and some newly emerging technologies. Some typical protocols are stated and analyzed. Also we compare these technologies in several aspects as the direction for future research.
