Scheduling Solution to Decrease The Total Task Completion Time in Wireless Sensor Actor Networks
In this paper, we present a scheduling model based on queuing theory to minimize the network make-span in
wireless sensor and actor networks. We compute the best rate of distribution of tasks by the network sink to allocated actors
through a steady state analysis of our proposed model to solve equations and inequalities. It is shown that this distribution
rate can enhance the total residual energies of the actor nodes, too. Experimental results on a typical scenario have shown
approximately 40% improvement in reducing the make-span compared to the stochastic allocation of tasks to the actors.
