Abstract

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology
promises to allow users to monitor fine-grained, dynamic
changes in an outdoor landscape. Such systems can be used
to improve the local environment but there are significant
problems to be overcome in translating this vision into
working systems. This paper outlines the challenges and
describes the issues involved in the design of a reactive and
robust, event-driven routing protocol for environmental
monitoring of soil moisture: when the rain falls and soil
moisture is changing rapidly, measurements are collected
frequently, whereas during dry periods between rainfall
events, measurements are collected much less often. Hence
any proposed solution must be reactive yet robust in these
wireless environments.
This paper outlines the challenges in supporting such
an environment and demonstrates a solution approach
based on the modification of a well known reactive routing
protocol, AODV, as well as different routing algorithms
that are able to adapt to changes in part or all of the
sensor network. Proposals to build a testbed to evaluate
the proposed solutions are outlined.
