Abstract

As the R&D experience accumulates, there is a rising interest of wireless sensor network (WSN) deployment in the urban environment. For mission critical applications such as healthcare and workplace safety, in particular, it is essential that the data dissemination mechanisms satisfy two important quality of service (QoS) requirements: (1) high delivery rate and (2) low transmission delay. Proposed in this work is a cross-layer designed data dissemination mechanism, referred to as Cross-Layer Diffusion (XD), in which notions in the path discovery (routing) component are exploited by data forwarding (MAC) component to improve the delivery rate and transmission delay. Using traces collected from a prototype WSN deployed in urban environment, we compare XD to the state-of-the-art mechanisms and find that XD is not only more efficient but also more practical.
