In networks with continuously heavy traffic, the sensors need not invoke any neighbor discovery protocol during operation. Most of the sensor nodes are used to send data, but some of the nodes are in inactive state. The data transmission in sensor nodes takes high bandwidth, energy and power. In this work showed how the scheme works well if every node connected to a segment estimates the in-degree of its possible hidden neighbors and then presented a neighbor discovery algorithm to determine the frequency of hidden nodes.

Keywords: Hidden neighbors, Sensor nodes.
