Abstract

This paper presents a new algorithm, Extra, for extending the lifetime of ad hoc wireless networks. Extra tries to conserve energy by identifying and switching off nodes that are momentarily redundant for message routing in the network. Extra is independent of the underlying routing protocol and uses exclusively information that is collected locally. Simulation studies conducted have shown promising results.
