Survey on Scheduling Mechanisms for Wireless Sensors in IoT Scenarios

Extending the network life time is an essential component for many types of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) used in IoT applications. IoT networks host Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in great numbers with limited computing, sensing, and energy capabilities. The data aggregation and energy constraints pose a major problem in IoT networks. To maximize the system utility, we need to adopt scheduling mechanisms. The main purpose of scheduling algorithms is to minimize resource consumption and to ensure efficient data collection as IoT hosts variety of applications. To achieve network lifetime maximization of wireless sensor network which is a major enabler of IoT networks can be done by scheduling algorithms. In this paper, we survey and discuss the existing scheduling techniques best suitable for an IoT based system.
