A survey of Optimizing Energy Utilization in Wireless Sensor Network using Duty Cycle Approach

Vishal Singh, Dr. Maninder Singh


A Wireless Sensor Network is a network that consists of large number of low cost, low power sensor nodes that are interconnected by
means of wireless medium and it finds major application in the field of environment monitoring, target tracking, vehicle tracking and
surveillance. The distinctive features of WSNs such as restricted bandwidth, computing capability, data delivery delay and strict energy
constraints make their design more difficult. An important concern in wireless sensor networks is the restricted availability of energy and a lot of
researches are carried out to for enhancing energy. The finest method to advance the network life span is by switching the node on/off as per the
functionalities. This paper provides a review of different duty cycling schemes for increasing the life span of the wireless sensor node.
