The limited resources of sensor nodes, such as battery, memory and processor, create a big challenge to researchers. One of the challenges when working on sensor nodes is to overcome the limited resources to create a routing protocol that saves energy and prolong the WSN lifetime. This research presents a Dynamic Load Balancing Protocol (DLBP) for WSN. The presented technique was inspired from Game Theory. It works dynamically to balance the load on all WSN nodes and exploits the network nodes to distribute the load fairly on every available sensor node. Xue algorithm is a dynamic load balancing technique (Xue, et al., 2011). Xue algorithm main idea is to calculate the weights of all neighbor nodes then find the possibility for each link. The data packets will be sent through the link with the highest possibility. A set of simulation experiments were conducted to evaluate the presented protocol through different metrics. Network scalability was studied, and it was found that DLBP saved energy with a ratio reached 20% comparing to Xue algorithm. The success ratio reached 97%, which is 16% better than Xue algorithm. Moreover, the routing overhead decreased by 72%, and the complexity of calculations decreased by %. The network lifetime also increased by 20%. 1 CHAPTER 1 Introduction 1.1 Overview A WSN is a network of hundreds or thousands of wireless sensor nodes. Each node is a small input device that gathers data by sensing the desired environmental parameters such as heat, humidity and movement. Sensors then send the collected data to a more powerful machine called the sink. The sensor node usually measures a physical quantity and converts it into a signal which can be read by an observer or by an instrument. Sensors are hardware devices that produce measurable response to a change in a physical condition like temperature and pressure. Sensors are used to sense or measure physical data of the area to be monitored (Almomani, et al., 2011, a). Figure 1 shows a typical sensor node structure; it shows the sensor main parts which are the transceiver, microcontroller, analog to digital converter (ADC), power unit, and external memory. The transceiver is the part that handles sending and receiving data, it consists of a transmitter and a receiver. The second part is the microcontroller which processes data, performs tasks and controls other parts of the sensor node. Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) is that part which converts continuous analog signals to digital signals or numbers (Wikipedia, 2013). 2 Figure 1: A typical sensor node structure (Wikipedia, 2013) Sensors could be found anywhere as their size could be small and tinny, and this feature increased the number of applications that depend on the sensor networks. Figure 2 shows some sensor types that we may see every day in our lives. Figure 2 shows some small and tinny sensor devices that could be used in some applications (Harvard, 2013). Figure 2: Small Sensor Nodes (Harvard, 2013) (Singularityhub, 2013) Wireless Sensor Network A WSN almost consists of two main things: the first one is the base station (BS) or sometimes it is called the Sink; which is a powerful device that controls and receives signals from wireless sensors in the network (Almomani, et al., 2011, a). The sink also can make some computations and evaluation on the accumulated data (AlKaraki and Kamal, 2004). The second thing in the WSN is the sensors; the WSN consists of hundreds or thousands of sensor nodes that are used to gather data and communicate directly with the sink or among other sensors to deliver the needed data (Ning, 2003). 3 Even though the sensor signal can reach the sink but most of the designers of WSNs prefer to make the communication between sink and sensors among other sensors such that a less energy would be consumed in the communication process (AlKaraki and Kamal, 2004). When the WSN contains more sensors it could be extended to cover a wide area, and the large number of sensors in the WSN should extend the network life such that it could live more and send much more messages to the sink (Ning, 2003) Applications of WSNs WSNs are widely used in many applications such as monitoring applications, military applications, medical care, Environment Observation and Forecasting Systems (EOFS) (AlKaraki and Kamal, 2004). Some of these applications could be very critical or sensitive such that any fault in the WSN may endanger the lives of some people or animals or put them under risk. Therefore any mistakes or weaknesses in the WSN topology or routing algorithm could be very expensive (Ning, 2003). WSNs are commonly used in civil or military applications, and these applications could be classified into data collection and surveillance that includes object tracking as a special case. Another classification is to classify applications into event driven and periodically data collecting applications (Singh, et al., 2010). For data collection hundreds or thousands of sensors may be spread in some field or area to gather some information about the environmental changes. These sensors collect data periodically. In some systems the collected data is aggregated and 4 analyzed to help in keeping the condition under control. As an example of using WSNs in data collecting is spreading sensors in a field to watch humidity, heat, pollution and many other environmental parameters (Jawhar, et al. 2011) (Swain, et al., 2010). Volcano alert system is another example on using WSN on the volcano. WSN could be used to give an early alert if there is an active volcano by sensing the earthquakes and temperature in the volcano location (Jawhar, et al. 2011). Figure 3: Volcano alert system (MCSL, 2013) Monitoring and surveillance applications require spreading or planting sensors in fixed locations such that we can know exactly the place of the event. Data sensing in these application depends on some event so we can call these systems event driven systems. Applications of this type could be used indoor or outdoor. For example they could be used inside a building to monitor the movements or track a person who is walking through the building rooms (Swain, et al., 2010). Forest fires alert system is another example of using WSN. It was found that early alerts could help to stop fires 67 Imad Jawhar, Nader Mohamed, Dharma P.
