Using location services to autonomously drive flying mobile sinks in Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract : The use of mobility in a Wireless Sensor Network has already been indicated as a feature whose exploitation would increase the performances and the ease of mantainance in these environments. Expecially in a event-based WSN, where is necessary a prompt response in terms of data processing and o oading, a set of mobile ying sinks could be a good option for the role of autonomous data collectors. For those reasons in this paper we propose a distributed algorithm to independently and autonomously drive a mobile sink through the nodes of a WSN and we show its preferability over more classical routing approaches expecially in the presence of a localized generation of large amount of information. Our result shows that, in the case of fairly complete coverage of the area where the nodes lie, it is possible to promptly notify a mobile sink about the presence of data to o oad, drive it to the interested area and achieve interesting performances.
