Sensor networks, once deployed, are expected to continue to function unmanned. However, energy of the sensors is typically unrenewable thus making it a very scarce resource. Therefore, in order to extend the life of the sensor networks for the duration of a particular mission, energy has to be managed wisely. In this paper, we consider the problem of energy conservation for grid-based sensor networks. A wireless sensor network architecture that is based on mobile base station is presented. Based on this architecture, we propose an asynchronous duty-cycle scheduling scheme for extending the lifetime of the grid-based wireless sensor networks.
