Abstract: A routing method and corresponding protocol in wireless sensor networks in manufacturing - in a complex networks view are studied in this paper. The algorithm could be used to form a WSN in manufacturing with a scale-free-network-like topology which helps shorten the length of the routing path. Together with the information fusion function involved in the scale-free routing protocol, the algorithm could dramatically reduce the redundancies of the datagram transferred in the WSN and thus improve the life cycle of WSN in manufacturing.

Keywords: complex networks; scale-free networks; routing algorithms; network topology; WSNs; wireless sensor networks; manufacturing industry; network life cycle; information fusion.
