In this paper, we focus on the calling behavior of Japanese tree frogs, which make calls alternately with their neighbors in order to increase the probability of mating. This behavior can be applied in phase control which realizes collision-free transmission scheduling in wireless communication. We propose a self-organizing scheduling scheme inspired by this frog calling behavior for reliable data transmission in wireless sensor networks. Simulation results show that our proposed method for phase control is capable of reducing data transmission failures and improves the data collection ratio up to 24% compared to a random transmission method.
