A Novel Aggregation Approach Based on Cooperative Agents and Self-Stabilizing Clustering for WSNs
In this paper, we present novel ideas for an intelligent aggregation approach based on cooperative agents and a self-stabilizing clustering scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). This aggregation solution aims at optimizing communications by combining an efficient self-stabilizing clustering approach and an intelligent cooperative aggregation process. On the one hand, the clustering approach reorganizes the network nodes into groups of nodes (i.e., clusters) so that it minimizes communications between nodes, their cluster-head and the Sink. On the other hand, the aggregation approach reduces communications by merging and sending only pertinent information to the Sink, in a distributed way.
