      The micropulse framework for adaptive waking windows in sensor networks 

      Zeinalipour-Yazdi, Constantinos D.; Andreou, Panayiotis G.; Chrysanthis, Panos K.; Samaras, George S.; Pitsillides, Andreas (2007)
      In this paper we present MicroPulse, a novel framework for adapting the waking window of a sensing device S based on the data workload incurred by a query Q. Assuming a typical tree-based aggregation scenario, the waking ...
