Abstract — The focus of this abstract is on a complete system for interest dissemination and routing in wireless sensor networks. To this end, we integrated algorithms developed in the recent literature, which we modified by optimizing their efficiency under very low duty cycle operations. Each sensor is autonomously capable of initiating neighbor estimation procedures, forwarding data traffic towards the sink or propagating interests (sink → sensor nodes). These operations are executed in parallel and as different tasks of the same protocol. Routing is carried out by exploiting hop count coordinates, which are proactively propagated along with interest dissemination packets. Moreover, MAC and routing algorithms are jointly designed to improve both energy consumption and the quality of the selected paths. Finally, neighbor estimation algorithms are activated on demand and exploited to optimize the operations during all phases of the protocol. I
