A MODEL FOR WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS SUPPORTED COOPERATIVE WORK

Lina M. Pestana Leão de Brito, Laura M. Rodríguez Peralta

Abstract

Collaboration is essential to Wireless Sensor Networks due to the typical resource limitations of the sensor nodes. In fact, the main functions of the network cannot be accomplished without collaboration among sensor nodes. Most of the work found in literature only focuses a specific type of collaboration, associated with the accomplishment of a certain task, such as signal processing, computing, routing, etc. In this paper, we present a graph-based model of cooperative work for WSNS. This model is called Wireless Sensor Networks Supported Cooperative Work (WSNSCW) and considers the specific requirements of the WSNS.
