A lot of researches are devoted to energy-save solutions in wireless sensor networks, to face their critical limited energy budget. We propose four information delivery mechanisms and we compare their relative energy impact, in order to make communications both reliable and energetic efficient. We present a parametric model to choose the best solution with respect to the great amount of factors that influence system performance, e.g., the hardware technology, the source to destination distance, the number of hops involved. For actual sensor nodes (μAMPS-1) we are able to guarantee a whole delivery strategy with an energy gain ranging from 5% to 15% with respect to the trivial hop-to-hop decoding one.
