This paper revisits the link quality issue in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) by studying the temporal and energy characteristics of a 2, 4Ghz sensor network in an outdoor environment. Using different values of output power and sampling period, we analyze battery behavior in motes placed at different distances and show that farther motes have a shorter battery life. Our experimental results suggest that when deployed in real world deployments, the sampling periods of sensor networks be adjusted according to distance to normalize battery lifetime and a more accurate energy-aware routing protocol be developed.
