A Proposed Paper on Joint Priority Based Approach for Scheduling and Congestion Control in Multipath Multi-hop WSN

Sweta A. Kahurke, Bhusion N. Mahajan


Congestion Control is the most important goal in wireless sensor network. Wireless sensor network is the event based system. When the event occurred, multiple sensor nodes sense the same event and are active for transmitting the information. This increases too much data traffic in the network, load becomes heavy this lead to congestion. Congestion causes packet drop, low throughput, increasing queuing delay, retransmission of packets this causes consumption of additional energy and wastage of communication resources . In this paper, we propose work of a priority based scheduling and congestion control protocol (PBSCCP) using multipath multihop routing in wireless sensor network . This new scheme will alleviate congestion in network , increases the throughput and packet delivery ratio and also minimize delay . This scheme will also increase network efficiency based on delivery of packets .
