Andrae, Christian and Kwong, Kae and Michie, Craig and Andonovic, Ivan (2009) A priority based routing protocol for wireless sensor networks. In: Proceedings of the 10th Annual Postgraduate Symposium on The Convergence of Telecommunications, Networking and Broadcasting (PGNET 2009), 1900-01-01.
Recently, the demands on wireless sensor networks have switched from low trafﬁc rate and static topology to more challenging requirements in order to meet the rapid expansion of WSN into various domain applications. This paper proposes a seamless cross layer solution that integrates network layer and medium access control to accommodate some of the new challenges. This new solution allows routing paths being generated dynamically to meet the requirement of potential mobile nodes. Higher data throughput and ﬂow control are part of the new demands required to be addressed urgently. The proposed solution integrates a priority based MAC to handle congestion and packet loss problems which commonly happened in WSN when an occurrence of event spread into wide area
