Environmental monitoring is one of the driving applications in the domain of sensor networks. The lifetime of such systems is envisioned to exceed several years. To achieve this longevity in unattended operation it is crucial to minimize energy consumption of the battery-powered sensor nodes. This paper proposes Dozer, a data gathering protocol meeting the requirements of periodic data collection and ultra-low power consumption. The protocol comprises MAC-layer, topology control, and routing all coordinated to reduce energy wastage of the communication subsystem. Using a tree-based network structure, packets are reliably routed towards the data sink. Parents thereby schedule precise rendezvous times for all communication with their children. In a deployed network consisting of 40 TinyOS- enabled sensor nodes, Dozer achieves radio duty cycles in the magnitude of 0.2%.
