Navneet Kaur, Manjinder Singh Kahlon . Deterministic HEER Protocol for Heterogeneous Reactive WSNs. International Journal of Computer Applications. 99, 17 ( August 2014), 24-29. DOI=10.5120/17465-8298
WSNs are playing a crucial role in real world applications. Due to the features of the resource-constrained and battery-aware sensors; in WSNs energy utilization has found to be a major interesting subject of research. WSNs compose battery-powered nodes which are connected with the base station to for certain action or task. As sensor nodes are battery-powered i. e. will become dead after the consumption of the battery which is also called lifetime of WSNs. So using the energy in well-organized way may result in prolonging the lifetime of the WSNs. This paper has proposed a new HEER protocol which is deterministic in nature instead of randomization i. e. based on the probability. The proposed technique is designed and implemented in MATLAB. The comparison among the proposed and existing HEER has shown that the proposed HEER has better results in terms of network lifetime and stability period.
