In extremely low-duty-cycle wireless sensor networks, a sender has to wait for a certain period of time to forward a packet until its receiver becomes active, which will result in longer end-to-end delay than ever. Many works have been done to improve delivery ratio but lack of the consideration on energy efficient delivery delay. In addition, unreliable links is another challenge in wireless sensor networks. Redundancy and multiple paths can be used to cope with unreliability, but neither of them is energy efficient. Even worse, both of them have poor performance on delivery delay. In this work, we introduce a novel way of allocating erasure coded blocks over multiple paths to improve energy efficient delivery delay while achieving comparably high delivery ratio. We evaluate our algorithm with extensive simulations. Evaluations show that our design decreases delivery delay greatly with slight decrease in delivery ratio.
