Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been widely recognized as a promising
technology that can enhance various aspects of structure monitoring
and border surveillance. Typical applications, such as sensors embedded
in the outer surface of a pipeline or mounted along the supporting structure
of a bridge, feature a linear sensor arrangement. Economical power
use of sensor nodes is essential for long-lasting operation. In this paper, we
present wireless High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) a novel approach to
energy-efficient data routing to a single control center in a linear sensor topology.
Applying a standard data layer along with a time division multiple
access (TDMA)-based Medium Access Control (MAC) and time synchronization
technique specifically designed for the linear topology, we address
the interoperability problem with guaranteed energy efficiency and data
link performance in linear sensor topology.
