Qos Management in Wireless Sensor Networks using LFQMS
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are emerging rapidly as a new generation of sensor networks. Despite intensive research in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), limited work has been found in the open literature in the field of WSNs. In particular, quality-of-service (QoS) management in WSNs remains an important issue yet to be investigated. As an attempt in this direction, this paper develops a logic for QoS management (LFQMS) scheme for WSNs with constrained resources and in dynamic and unpredictable environments. Taking advantage of the feedback control technology, this scheme deals with the impact of unpredictable changes in traffic load on the QoS of WSNs. It utilizes a logic controller inside each source sensor node to adapt sampling period to the deadline miss ratio associated with data transmission from the sensor to the sensor. The deadline miss ratio is maintained at a pre-determined desired level so that the required QoS can be achieved. The (LFQMS) has the advantages of generality, scalability, and simplicity. Simulation results show that the (LFQMS) can provide WSNs with QoS support.
