Lifetime Analysis of Error Control Schemes on Wireless Sensor Networks in Industrial Environments
MetadataShow full item record
Due to the harsh channel conditions of the industrial environment, the data transmission over wireless channel suffers from erroneous packets. The energy consumption of error control schemes is of vital importance for battery-powered Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In this paper, the performance evaluation of error control schemes namely, Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ), Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Hybrid ARQ (HARQ) in industrial environment in terms of energy efficiency is presented. The impact of the existing error control schemes on the industrial wireless sensor network lifetime is analyzed. A novel Mixed Integer Programming (MIP) framework is developed to maximize network lifetime. Performance results show that utilizing BCH (31,21,5) for Telos at the link layer maximizes the network lifetime while attaining the desired application reliability rate.
