Wireless communication is the major energy consumer compared to computation and sensing operations performed by a battery-powered wireless sensor node. The reduction of communication power consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) can be achieved using adaptive transmission power adjustment paradigms. Although transmission reliability can be enhanced further by transmitting route discovery messages and data packets at unnecessarily high transmission power outputs, this may introduce excessive interference and collisions and wastes energy.
