Abstract

Big sensor-based data environment and the emergence of large-scale wireless sensor networks (LS-WSNs), which are spread over wide geographic areas and contain thousands of sensor nodes, require new techniques for energy-efficient data collection. Recent approaches for data collection in WSNs have focused on techniques using mobile data collectors (MDCs) or sinks. Compared to traditional methods using static sinks, the MDC techniques give two advantages for data collection in LS-WSNs. These techniques can handle data collection over spatially separated geographical regions, and have been shown to require lower node energy consumption. Two common models for data collection using MDCs have been proposed: data collection using data mule (MULE), and sensor network with mobile access point (SENMA). The MULE and SENMA approaches can be characterized as representative of the multihop and the single-hop approaches for mobile data collection in WSNs. Although the basic architectures for MULE and SENMA have been well studied, the emergence of LS-WSNs which require partitioning the network into multiple groups and clusters prior to data collection has not been particularly addressed. This paper presents analytical approaches to determine the node energy consumption for LS-WSN MDC schemes and gives models for determining the optimal number of clusters for minimizing the energy consumption. The paper also addresses the tradeoffs when the LS-WSN MULE and SENMA models perform well. © 2016 IEEE.
