Energy Saving Application of Data Fusion Algorithm in ZigBee Networks

Lei Gao, Yuan-Dong Lan


The methods for reducing energy consumption of ZigBee network nodes covers the physical layer, the media access layer, network layer, application layer and other layers. This article from the perspective of the application layer, describes energy consumption model for wireless sensor networks, considering the data redundancy and large energy consumption in the case of large share of node space, an improved batch estimation algorithm in data aggregation is proposed to be used in ZigBee network. This algorithm is fusing light intensity data in ZigBee spatial domain, the algorithm indicates a method in the application layer, so as to improve node utilization and reduce energy consumption.
