Energy-aware Gossip Techniques for Wireless Broadcasting
The current state of research on gossip techniques for wireless broadcasting is very limited because past research efforts have mostly focused on using gossip techniques for multicast communication. On the other hand, those research efforts that have focused on using gossip techniques for wireless broadcast communications ignore energy efficiency and network lifetime. With the emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, known with their limited energy and processing resource capabilities, energy consumption is becoming more and more important to account for when designing wireless broadcasting protocols. In this thesis, we propose a new energy-aware broadcasting protocol for wireless adhoc networks. Specifically, the proposed protocol dynamically adapts the fanout parameter based on wireless nodes' remaining energy to prolong the lifetime of the network. Our simulation results show that our proposed energy-aware gossip protocol outperforms existing approaches by achieving fast message broadcasting times while extending the nodes' battery lifetime.
