Dynamic Scheduler for WSN Applications in Precision Agriculture
Sensors may be configured to collect the various parameters those do not change over a long interval (i.e. water level, soil attributes/ fertilizer quantity of agriculture land/ growth of crops). In case, if all sensors start transmission after a lengthy intermission, it may cause packet drop over network and excessive resources may be exhausted due to retransmission. To manage the bulk data forwarding with minimum resource consumption, in this paper, an application scheduler is introduced to enforce the discipline bulk data transmission. Its performance is analyzed using LEACH protocol under the constraints of various parameters (Throughput/remaining energy/number of dead/alive sensors) with sensor density (100-300).
