In this document, the design of communication within a wireless sensor network is discussed. The resource limitations of such a network, especially in terms of energy, require an integrated approach for all (traditional) layers of communication. We present such an integrated, collaborative approach which is part of current research in the European research project EYES on energy-efficient sensor networks. In particular, energy-efficient solutions for medium access control, clusterbased routing and multipath routing are discussed. As part of the ongoing project, these approaches work together and are designed to support each other.
