Abstract

This paper presents TiNA, a scheme for minimizing energy consumption in sensor networks by exploiting end-user tolerance to temporal coherency. TiNA utilizes temporal coherency tolerances to both reduce the amount of information transmitted by individual nodes (communication cost dominates power usage in sensor networks), and to improve quality of data when not all sensor readings can be propagated up the network within a given time constraint. TiNA was evaluated against a traditional in-network aggregation scheme with respect to power savings as well as the quality of data for aggregate queries. Preliminary results show that TiNA can reduce power consumption by up to 50% without any loss in the quality of data.
