dc.description.abstractThe emerging Internet of Things paradigm has triggered an explosion in ad-hoc applications that require connectivity among the nodes of wireless networks. However, the channel randomness and the random deployment of such networks could cause missed detections by isolated (i.e., unable to disseminate their messages) or inactive (i.e., without enough energy to transmit) nodes. Moreover, as the number of nodes increases, the use of “green” solutions such as wireless energy harvesting for powering battery-less devices could eliminate the maintenance costs and boost immensely the network lifetime. In this paper, we study the connectivity in a wireless-powered sensor network (WPSN) with battery-less devices under two common routing schemes, namely unicast and broadcast. We provide an analytical model for the ability of a WPSN to be reliable and evaluate the trade-offs among the different scenarios via simulation.
