One of the fundamental problem faced by wireless sensor networks is its constrained lifetime due to scarce energy supply available during their operation. In this paper we are going to model an efficient real time wireless recharging for wireless sensor network along with Dynamic Multilevel Priority( DMP) packet scheduling. For that firstly a Real time recharging scheme is adopted. An NDN based Real time recharging scheme is one of the best real time recharging scheme which uses multiple mobile vehicles for recharging, and also provides more scalability and robustness. In this proposed work, an efficient real time wireless recharging protocol which is named as, ENHANCED NETWRAP (E-NETWRAP) is developed, by including DMP packet scheduling along with above mentioned NDN based real time recharging scheme. By adopting DMP packet scheduling scheme along with the Real time recharging framework further improves the network performance.

Real Time Recharging





In this paper, an efficient NDN based real time wireless recharging model with DMP packet scheduling is developed. Use of NDN based real time recharging scheme enables coordination of multiple mobile vehicles to recharge sensor nodes. Employing multiple mobile vehicles provides more scalability and robustness. In this framework, a scalable and efficient communication protocol along with priority packet scheduling, called ENETWRAP is developed, which provides more priority for real-time energy information gathering and delivery mechanism, and also for real time recharging of energy depleted nodes when compared to other non real time process . E-NETWRAP ensures minimum end to end data transmission for the highest priority data i.e. real time based recharging packets, while exhibiting acceptable fairness towards lowest priority data. This protocol can also adapt to unpredictable and dynamic network conditions and satisfies the needs for both normal and emergency recharging of nodes. Performance of the developed E-NETWRAP protocol is analyzed and it is compared with NETWRAP case by using graphs of various simulation metrics. Comparison results show that E-NETWRAP is having better network performance than the NETWRAP.
