The main goal is to provide to the sensors a technique that helps them deliver their data even when the coordinator's battery is very low or empty or else the connection to the access point is lost, what leads to balancing energy consumption between cooperating coordinators. For this purpose, an energy threshold-based technique is used and energy-aware optimised link state routing (EA-OLSR) is defined and used. Simulation results show interesting performances in terms of network lifetime with a gain of about 30% and data delivery about 20%.
