Abstract
We investigate two wireless networking problems related to object mobility in the two fields of Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) Systems, and Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSNs). RFID is an automatic identification technology where inexpensive information storage devices, called tags, are attached to objects for identification purposes. Nowadays, RFID is pervasive with a number of deployed tags fast approaching millions of tags. UWSNs, on the other hand, have attracted attention for their use in scientific studies of marine life, as well as industrial applications such as monitoring underwater oil pipelines. For RFID systems, we investigate the problem of identifying a stream of tags on a moving conveyor belt. For UWSNs, we investigate the problem of assessing the likelihood that two given nodes of an UWSN can reach each other using a path of bounded length or delay. For each problem, we devise a solution method, obtain analytical results on the quality of the derived solution, and present simulation results to verify and gain insight into our findings
