Abstract

This paper investigates an adaptation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) to animal health monitoring. Multiple sensors are attached on each individual to monitor health condition or study animal's behaviour. However, the robustness of the sensor network cannot be guaranteed due to the limited transmission range on sensor nodes and data sink as the animal mobility is considered. In this paper, two data collection approaches: router scheme and collector scheme are proposed to enhance the network connectivity. Comparisons are also made between the proposed schemes and traditional data gathering method with fixed base station (BS). The performance of the proposed design is evaluated through an 8-day trial field experiment.
