efficient WSN applications

A mature wireless sensor network automation tool requires the
implementation of different protocols for different topology and appli-
cation scenarios to optimise the overall system performance. Focusing
on the transport layer energy-aware routing function for the Tyndall
Heterogeneous Automated Wireless Sensor (THAWS), embedding a
reactive routing protocol, an energy-efficient proactive heuristic proto-
col and a distributed geographical routing mechanism on the Tyndall
10 and 25 mm nodes is proposed. Those protocols manage small,
medium and large sensor applications adaptively, while the end users
of the THAWS tool are transparent from protocol selection.
Introduction: The Tyndall Heterogeneous Automated Wireless Sensors
(THAWS) tool has two types of nodes with different node layers devel-
oped by the Tyndall National Institute [1]. Two modular nodes have
been designed with a size of 10 by 10 mm, and 25 by 25 mm. These
are referred to as the 10 and 25 mm nodes shown in Fig. 1. Sensor
layers can then be connected with application-specific sensors. In
