Power-Aware Routing Algorithms for Sensor Networks - A Brief Survey
John Augustine

Sensor networks pose challenging design limitations that often require re-working of well researched problems. This talk will deal with one such issue, namely the limited amount of power in a battery powered node in the network. Traditional routing algorithms may drain a crucial node in the network that might have several debilitating effects on the network at large. Several system level researchers have started studying this problem producing interesting results, both empirically and theoretically. This talk will be a survey of these results.
