Abstract: Recent advances in the development of ultra-low-power transceivers and energy harvesting devices (e.g., solar cells) enable self-sustainable and perpetual wireless networks. In contrast to legacy wireless sensor networks, where the available energy only decreases as the nodes sense and forward data, in energy harvesting networks the available energy also increases via a replenishment process. Energy replenishment results in a significantly novel model, which poses new challenges in the design of resource allocation and routing algorithms. Nodes in EnHANTs – Energy Harvesting Active Networked Tags – harvest energy from solar or movement cells, and were first developed at Columbia University. In this work we introduce HDR – Hysteresis Driven Routing, the first algorithm for routing messages in such networks. After introducing the basic paradigm using a simple topology, we apply the algorithm to larger networks, new configurations and a variety of traffic patterns. We also develop a model for determining optimal performance and show by simulation that HDR performs close to optimally for a large variety of parameters.
