Wireless sensors network is a type of the Ad-hoc network. It is comprised of many sensors, interlinked with each other for performing the same function collectively such as monitoring the weather conditions, temperature, different kind of vibrations, sound etc. Any distributed system requires...
In wireless sensor networks, sensor nodes may fail due to energy depletion or physical damage. To recover the data of a failed node, we propose a fault recovery scheme which enables the remaining alive sensor nodes to use the redundant information with regard to the failed node to fulfill the...
Currently, outdoor localization can be done using a GPS device which obtains positions from satellites. However GPS signals are not available in indoor environments. We can precisely measure signal levels on the devices in a wireless sensor network (WSN). Various room conditions and...
Many applications of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) require the sensor nodes of a network to belong to different priority classes where the nodes of a higher priority class enjoy higher data rates than nodes of a lower priority class. Practical design of such networks, however, faces challenges...
The problem of distributed detection and decision fusion in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is revisited. The detection performance of a WSN is inherently limited by the wireless propagation environment. The fusion of decisions forwarded by each sensor is subject to Nakagami-m fading which can...
In distributed sensing systems, measurements from a random process or parameter are usually not available in one place. Also, the processing resources are distributed over the network. This distributed characteristic of such sensing systems demands for special attention when an estimation or...
Recently, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been used in many monitoring applications, e.g., environment monitoring. A WSN consists of a set of nodes, each having one or more sensors to measure a phenomena. Nodes are connected to each other using wireless radio communications. Typically, there...
IntelliSensorNet: A Positioning Technique Integrating Wireless Sensor Networks and Artificial Neural Networks for Critical Construction Resource TrackingDownload
The increasing needs for safety and productivity improvement in the field of construction engineering and project management have stimulated research interests in developing cost-effective resource tracking and positioning solutions for challenging indoor or partially covered site environments....
We study lifetime of linear and two-dimensional Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) for the case where wireless sensors are not able to change their transmission power. In this case, unlike majority of existing works, power control cannot be used to increase network's lifetime. Instead, other...
On the Trade-Off Between User-Location Privacy and Queried-Location Privacy in Wireless Sensor NetworksDownload
Technical report TR09-07. By eavesdropping on a user's query in a sensor network, an adversary can deduce both the user's location and his/her area of interest. In many domains it is desirable to guarantee privacy of both places. Relying on the principle of k-anonymity, we propose an effective...
