TL;DR: In this document, a review of power aware design for sensor nodes is presented and some resources and task management, communication, topology control and routing protocols are named.
Abstract: Distributed wireless sensor network consist on several scattered nodes in a knowledge area. Those sensors have as its only power supplies a pair of batteries that must let them live up to five years without substitution. That-s why it is necessary to develop some power aware algorithms that could save battery lifetime as much as possible. In this is document, a review of power aware design for sensor nodes is presented. As example of implementations, some resources and task management, communication, topology control and routing protocols are named.

TL;DR: A robust, marketable, general purpose and flexibly configurable device that offers three years of battery lifetime, GSM communications, local and remotely configurable behaviour, with wired and/or remote firmware-update facility and "one month before battery depletion" warning.
Abstract: In this paper we present the design and implementation of a robust, marketable, general purpose and flexibly configurable device that offers three years of battery lifetime, GSM communications, local and/or remotely configurable behaviour, with wired and/or remote firmware-update facility and "one month before battery depletion" warning. It has been designed based upon WSN's power-aware techniques and empirical obtained results borne laboratory measurements out.

TL;DR: An automated irrigation system developed to optimize water use for agricultural crops has the potential to be useful in water limited geographically isolated areas.
Abstract: An automated irrigation system was developed to optimize water use for agricultural crops. The system has a distributed wireless network of soil-moisture and temperature sensors placed in the root zone of the plants. In addition, a gateway unit handles sensor information, triggers actuators, and transmits data to a web application. An algorithm was developed with threshold values of temperature and soil moisture that was programmed into a microcontroller-based gateway to control water quantity. The system was powered by photovoltaic panels and had a duplex communication link based on a cellular-Internet interface that allowed for data inspection and irrigation scheduling to be programmed through a web page. The automated system was tested in a sage crop field for 136 days and water savings of up to 90% compared with traditional irrigation practices of the agricultural zone were achieved. Three replicas of the automated system have been used successfully in other places for 18 months. Because of its energy autonomy and low cost, the system has the potential to be useful in water limited geographically isolated areas.

TL;DR: To cover the need for energy models that precisely define the power consumption behavior of WSN hardware platforms, this paper contributes with a measuring methodology including three steps: the design and implementation of a measuring system for a wide range of power consumption thresholds, the identification, isolation and measurement of elementary functionalities of a WSN platform with respect to their contribution to the overall mote power consumption.

TL;DR: This paper contributes with a measuring methodology which involves combining power consumption of platform elementary functionalities with battery discharge characteristics, so that a practical, yet accurate battery lifetime prediction model can be formed.
Abstract: Wireless Sensor Network devices have by nature limited available energy to perform a wide range of demanding tasks. In order to maximize their operation lifetime, optimal resource management is an important challenge and its success requires methodical modeling of the factors contributing to the overall power consumption. Moreover, the power consumed is not always useful on its own, but it should rather express the expected lifetime concerning the device’s normal operation. To achieve such awareness, this paper contributes with a measuring methodology which involves combining power consumption of platform elementary functionalities with battery discharge characteristics, so that a practical, yet accurate battery lifetime prediction model can be formed.

TL;DR: Critical characteristics of wireless sensor networks, as being autonomous and comprising small or miniature devices are achieved at the expense of very strict available energy related limitations, means optimal resource management is among the most important challenges in WSNs development and success.
Abstract: Critical characteristics of wireless sensor networks, as being autonomous and comprising small or miniature devices are achieved at the expense of very strict available energy related limitations. Therefore, it is apparent that optimal resource management is among the most important challenges in WSNs development and success.
