Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF SENSING TECHNOLOGY
Abstract:
A sensor network comprising a controller and a plurality of sensor devices configured to be distributed about an area and to communicate via a wireless communication link with the controller. Each sensor device is arranged to sense a parameter and to provide to the controller, via the wireless communication link, sensor data indicating a sensed parameter value and each sensor device is configured to report the sensor data to the controller according to a reporting condition associated with the each sensor device. The controller is configured to obtain location data indicating the location of each of the plurality of sensor devices and obtain said sensor data from each of the plurality of sensor devices to determine a reporting command for a selected sensor device based on the obtained sensor data and the corresponding location data; and to provide the reporting command to the selected sensor device to update the reporting condition associated with the selected sensor device.
