Maximizing wireless sensor networks (WSNs) lifetime is a primary objective in the design of these networks. Intelligent energy management models can assist designers to achieve this objective. These models aim to reduce the number of selected sensors to report environmental measurements and, hence, achieve higher energy efficiency while maintaining the desired level of accuracy in the reported measurement. In this paper, we present a comparative study of three intelligent models based on Naive Bayes, Multilayer Perceptrons (MLP), and Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifiers. Simulation results show that Linear-SVM selects sensors that produce higher energy efficiency compared to those selected by MLP and Naive Bayes for the same WSNs Lifetime Extension Factor.
