A Case Study of Wireless Sensor Network Latency in the Philippines for Enhancement of Packet-data Transmission
Abstract— Wireless sensor network is the engine of communication in the digital world. Communication rules the entire industry including business, medicine agriculture and many more. In this research paper, researchers discuss delay of packet data transmission of wireless sensor network communication in the Philippines. The research was conducted in a route based configuration wireless sensor network designed in a laboratory setting. Packet data congestion in network was identified by the researchers to be addressed. Openstat population-data of Philippine Statistic Authority were used during the simulation (http://openstat.psa.gov.ph/). Transmission delay of packet data from one route to another route was measured through response duration and return time-lapse. Researchers present an experimental evaluation of Dynamic Resource Routing (DRS), Self Selective Routing (SSR) and Ad-hoc Distance Vector Routing (ADVR). Experiments were evaluated to determine the lowest latency value of the returning node from a route going to next route. Authors compare different parameters such as number of nodes, source nodes, time interval, distance (meters2), stop-time, packet size and average number of wireless sensor users. Improvements to lessen the delay of transmission of packet data from devices passing through a multiple network route were listed. This research identifies the comparison of number of routes required to the number of users and the size of the packet data in a particular area in average. We proved that the number of source nodes (users) should have average number of route that correspond the lowering of network latency.
