In this paper, a new data dissemination algorithm for wireless sensor networks is presented. The key idea of the proposed solution is to combine concepts presented in trajectory-based forwarding with the information provided by the energy map of the network to determine routes in a dynamic fashion, according to the energy level of the sensor nodes. This is an important feature of an autonomic system, which must have the capacity of adapting its behavior according to its available resources. Simulation results revealed that the energy spent with the data dissemination activity can be concentrated on nodes with high-energy reserves, whereas low-energy nodes can use their energy only to perform sensing activity or to receive information addressed to them. In this manner, partitions of the network due to nodes that ran out of energy can be significantly delayed and the network lifetime extended.
