Abstract

Energy preservation constitutes a very critical challenge in wireless sensor network surveillance applications. On one hand, transmitting data by using additional transmission power is among the biggest sources of energy consumption. On the other hand, using a small transmission power degrades the connectivity between nodes. In this paper, a Distributed transmission Power Control Method (DPCM) to minimize the consumed energy is proposed. Moreover, it aims to keep a good connectivity between nodes. These purposes are accomplished by adjusting, dynamically, the transmission power taking into account the connectivity information of the neighbors at one and two-hop. Simulation experiences are carried out to measure the performance improvements of the presented method in both static and mobile networks by using Castalia simulator. According to the obtained results, the authors' method minimizes the consumed energy without penalizing the connectivity between nodes compared to DPCS and farthest neighbor methods. In addition, DPCM achieves good performances in spite of node mobility. Copyright \textcopyright 2014, IGI Global.
