Project Abstract:

Wireless sensor networks have gained importance in civil and military applications. Power management is a crucial problem in sensor networks since usually sensors have limited battery life. In this project we propose a dynamic power management algorithm which can effectively reduce system power consumption while at the same time meet some performance requirement. This algorithm is implemented in crossbow MICA 2 and MCIAz motes. The experiment results show that the power management algorithm has good performance.
