An algorithm for self-scheduling of node access and self-configuration of routes to data collectors in wireless sensor networks is proposed and described. The algorithm relies on the robustness and stability of the self-synchronisation of unnamed pulse coupled oscillators. Results of an initial simulation of a protocol based on the algorithm are reported. The results indicate that the protocol is resilient in the presence of low levels of mobility and noise. Plans to perform more realistic future tests including a full implementation are outlined.
