Thesis Title

End to end reliable event transfer in wireless sensor networks


In this thesis, a new group of end-to-end reliable event transfer schemes is introduced for sensor networks. In the proposed schemes, reliable event delivery is considered rather than reliable delivery of data packets, since the ultimate goal is the detection of events in sensor networks.Reliable event transfer is critical in many sensor network applications. Therefore, the need for transferring the events in a reliable manner coerced us to introduce a new group of end-to-end event transfer schemes categorized into two broad classes, as acknowledgement based and non-acknowledgement based. Our schemes introduced in this thesis are in acknowledgement based class. Finally, the performance of the proposed schemes is evaluated for various application areas by simulation.
