Abstract

Energy is one of the most important resources in wireless sensor networks. We use an idealized mathematical model to study the impact of routing on energy consumption. Our results are very general and, within the assumptions listed in Section 2, apply to arbitrary topologies, routings and radio energy models. We find bounds on the minimal and maximal energy routings will consume, and use them to bound the lifetime of the network. The bounds are sharp, and can be achieved in many situations of interest. We illustrate the theory with some examples.
