There for, 8 colors are enough to dye the plane graph with the extended 2-hop color theorem, which means that 8 time slots are necessary to schedule the MUWSN when the network degree is set with 4.
In the odd (2i - 1, i = 2,3 ...) time slots, the data is transmitted in the direction from A to B.
By means of simulation studies, we have established the values of the first three parameters for which best solutions were obtained for the entire set of experiments (number of nodes and number of time slots), crossover probability = 0.1, mutation probability = 0.05 and population size = 400.
The mentioned broadcasting process transfers a subsegment of segment [S.sub.i] once every time slots. Because the number of subsegments of segment [S.sub.i] equals [2.sub.j], the broadcasting process can transmit all the subsegments of segment [S.sub.i] once every [2.sup.j]k time slots.
Each visitor is given a one-and-ahalf-hour time slot to browse freely around the facility, and find out more about some of the Victorian prisoners who stayed there.
In this paper, the main problem is how to jointly find routes to the sink and allocate different frequency channels and time slots to the links, in order to avoid collisions at the aim of minimizing the data collection latency and maximizing the network lifetime.
This latter is based on the assumption that the road is partitioned into equal small size areas and the time slots in every TDMA frame are divided into three sets which correspond to cars in three successive areas.
As long as Q is not empty, the nodes in it are sorted in decreasing order according to nllb, to make more time slots can be multiplexed since more broadcast node can be scheduled to send according to the first broadcast constraint.
The biosensor node which transmits in the input notice time will pick up a new slot from the contention window span that is utilized preceding every individual transmission and would intent its counter to the time period of the chosen or preferred time slot. If the counter adheres to zero, data transaction will take place in the biosensor node.
However, the batteries may not be fully charged, as it may take several time slots to complete battery charging.
In such architecture, the relay node receives the data from the source node and resends it to the destination node in two different time slots. All the subcarriers in the first time slot were served to the source for transmission.
