Abstract:


This research work presents a new model in Wireless Sensor Network in which data aggregation is done by Multi Agent Systems and causes to prolong the network lifetime. A Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol is applied for the interconnect communication between nodes to prevent the collision and to save the band width. We also used the Flooding method with some modification to handle the Node Synchronization. The Network Performance measured by means of increasing the network lifetime, balancing the energy consumption between nodes, and increasing the network reliability and security. The empirical result obtained from our model indicates the balance of energy consumption among nodes that leads to an excellent performance when a number of messages are sent from each node.
