This thesis regards the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), as one of the most important technologies for the twenty-first century and the implementation of different packet correcting erasure codes to cope with the ”bursty” nature of the transmission channel and the possibility of packet losses during the transmission. The limited battery capacity of each sensor node makes the minimization of the power consumption one of the primary concerns in WSN. Considering also the fact that in each sensor node the communication is considerably more expensive than computation, this motivates the core idea to invest computation within the network whenever possible to safe on communication costs. The goal of the research was to evaluate a parameter, for example the Packet Erasure Ratio (PER), that permit to verify the functionality and the behavior of the created network, validate the theoretical expectations and evaluate the convenience of introducing the recovery packet techniques using different types of packet erasure codes in different types of networks. Thus, considering all the constrains of energy consumption in WSN, the topic of this thesis is to try to minimize it by introducing encoding/decoding algorithms in the transmission chain in order to prevent the retransmission of the erased packets through the Packet Erasure Channel and save the energy used for each retransmitted packet. In this way it is possible extend the lifetime of entire network.
