Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,027

1. A link scheduling controller device comprising:a controller that assigns different duration slots to a plurality of sensor nodes within a linear wireless sensor network; and
a transmitter that communicates a schedule of the assigned duration slots to the respective sensor nodes within the linear wireless sensor network,
wherein the controller calculates the different duration slots to minimize an average power consumption of the plurality of sensor nodes, based on a search matrix X, and subject to an upper bound on a total length of the schedule.
