Abstract: The multi-domain wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are a set of single network co-exist in the same physical location by different authorities. Since nodes in the networks are often battery-limited, the maximisation of network lifetime and the efficiency of balancing energy are important design criterions. In this paper, we present a modified topology control protocol which combines the critical transmitting range (CTR) and K-neigh topology control strategy. The new algorithm binary network route algorithm based on price, energy and location technology (BiPEL) is proposed using credit incentive. The results show that the BiPEL algorithm improves the network lifetime and makes the balance of network energy more efficiently. It is also learned that the network lifetime of multi-domain networks is not positive correlation with the cooperation rate.

Keywords: multi-domain WSNs; wireless sensor networks; routing algorithms; network lifetime; energy consumption; topology control; critical transmitting range; CTR; price; location; credit incentives; cooperation rate.
