The rapid progress that has realized the wireless sensor network during the last years has permitted a large deployment not only in specific uses but also in common application linked to several areas. This dynamic evolution faces enormous challenges to overcome many constraints characterizing this type of network and affecting the quality of service provided. The energy efficiency is considered as one of the most critical challenges in wireless sensor networks.
To address to this issue, adapting the transmission features in term of power and frequency is necessary. This approach should participate in ameliorating the performance of the wireless sensor network by increasing the connectivity through the network and reducing the interference effect. Our work conducts to an experiment design and implementation showing the correlation between the power control and the frequency on the one hand and the link quality on the other hand.
