Table 3 Minimum energy algorithm

From: MEA: an energy efficient algorithm for dense sector-based wireless sensor networks

Minimum energy algorithm
   - Annulus number is set to i when bi-1Rb i (b k for k = 1,...,i is obtained from Equation (5))
   - Nodes in annulus 1 transmit data directly. Their transmission ranges are adjusted based on their individual distances from sink node
   - For each node n in annulus j(j = 2, ..., i) with distance to sink node of dist(n)
if ri-1 ≤ dist(n) < bi
Transmission is provided by j - 1 hop communication. Transmission range is adjusted based on dist ( n ) ( j - 1 )
else
Transmission is provided by j hop communication. Transmission range is adjusted based on dist ( n ) ( j )
