Abstract: The query processing paradigm in sensor networks postulates that a query is routed among sensors and collects the answers from the sensors on its trajectory. It works for static and connected sensor networks. However, when the network consists of mobile sensors and is sparse, a different approach is necessary. In this paper we propose a store-and-forward query processing method that uses gossiping. It makes the data items satisfying a query flow to its originator. To cope with energy, communication bandwidth, and storage constraints, the method prioritizes the data-items in terms of their value, as reflected by supply and demand. Simulations show that our approach outperforms two existing mobile sensor network algorithms.
