This paper presents a time synchronized forwarding protocol for remotely controlling home appliances connected to wireless sensor networks (WSNs) that have extremely large latency for transferring data to another node. The protocol basically uses distributed time division multiple access (TDMA) and provides scalability by a self-organization function based on a virtual sensor line. Time synchronized forwarding and self organization protocols using virtual sensor lines achieve not only low latency but also low power consumption for future consumer applications .
