Mobility helps energy balancing in wireless networks
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we investigate the effects of mobility on the energy dissipation characteristics of wireless networks. We construct a Linear Programming (LP) framework that jointly captures data routing, mobility, and energy dissipation aspects and explore the design space by performing numerical analysis using the developed LP framework. Our results show that mobility has significant effects on the energy dissipation trends of wireless nodes. Mobility can improve the energy balancing up to a certain level, however extreme mobility may lead to a degradation in energy balancing, and thus energy efficiency of wireless networks. © 2013 IEEE.
