Abstract: In wireless sensor networks (WSNs), the densely deployment and the dynamic phenomenon provide strong correlation between sensor nodes. This correlation is typically spatiotemporal. This paper proposes an efficient data collection technique, based on spatio-temporal correlation between sensor data, aiming to extend the network lifetime in periodic WSN applications. In the first step, our technique proposes a new model based on an adapted version of Euclidean distance which searches, in addition to the spatial correlation, the temporal correlation between neighbouring nodes. Based on this correlation and in a second step, a subset of sensors are selected for collecting and transmitting data based on a sleep/active algorithm. Our proposed technique is validated via experiments on real sensor data readings. Compared to other existing techniques, the results show the effectiveness of our technique in terms of reducing energy consumption and extending network lifetime while maintaining the coverage of the monitored area.

Keywords: PSNs; periodic sensor networks; spatio-temporal data correlation; sleep/active sensors; real data readings.
