Abstract:

In the uniform node distribution scheme, nodes around the sink use up their energy much faster than other nodes do, which forms the energy hole problem. To solve this problem, we propose a novel proportional node distribution scheme. According to the distance to the sink and the simulation results on the energy consumption in the uniform node distribution scheme, we quantitatively determine the nodes' distribution mode, and then the energy hole problem can be solved effectively.
