Maximization of lifetime is one of the most important design goals in Wireless sensor networks (WSN). On the other hand, for any given network design problem scalability is also of utmost importance. Yet, these two design goals are acting against each other. In this study, a characterization of achievable network lifetime as a function of the degree of localization of the routing operations under ideal conditions by using three localized routing approaches is performed. We built a novel linear programming framework to model the network behavior and by using the framework sampled the parameter space. © 2013 IEEE.
