We propose Correlated Dissemination (CD), a fast and energy efficient bulk data dissemination protocol for reprogramming in WSNs. The main contribution of CD is that it disseminates data according to a novel structure called correlated tree which considers both link qualities and link correlations. The construction of correlated tree is lightweight and allows for more efficient data transmission. Besides, it selectively and dynamically employs rateless codes to improve the performance, especially in circumstances where link correlation is inherently weak. We implement CD based on TelosB testbed with both TinyOS and OpenWSN (with 802.15.4e MAC). Evaluation results show that, compared with previous works, CD greatly improves the dissemination performance in terms of completion time, transmission cost and energy efficiency.
