Rapid progress in microelectromechanical system (MEMS) and radio frequency (RF) design has enabledthe development of low-power, inexpensive, and network-enabled microsensors. These sensor nodes arecapable of capturing various physical information, such as temperature, pressure, motion of an object,etc as well as mapping such physical characteristics of the environment to quantitative measurements. Atypical wireless sensor network (WSN) consists of hundreds to thousands of such sensor nodes linked by awireless medium. In this paper, we present a comparative investigation of energy consumption for fewcommercially available chipsets such as TR1001, CC1000 and CC1010 based on different schedulingmethods for two types of deployment strategies. We conducted our experiment within the OMNeT++simulator.
