    This paper presents the expected link performance (ELP) metric for finding high throughput, low delay paths in 802.11 mesh networks. ELP combines three different mechanisms to accurately determine the expected link performance. Link quality information is combined with cross-layered link interference estimation to select optimal paths. Simulation results show that ELP significantly outperforms bot... View full abstract»

    This paper first implements routing mechanisms in cluster based routing protocol (CBRP) on a recently proposed clustering scheme, named efficient clustering scheme (ECS). Such a cluster based routing scheme is named efficient cluster based routing protocol (ECBRP) in this paper. ECS maintains a more stable and less overlapping 1-hop clusterhead-based cluster structure as compared to other typical ... View full abstract»

  • Resource Efficiency in MANETs: Effect of Spurious Timeouts and Routing Protocol Dynamics

    The presence of delay-sensitive traffic in QoS-aware MANETs (mobile ad-hoc networks) results into increased TCP spurious timeouts, thus wasting their scarce bandwidth. Furthermore, the different dynamics used by a routing protocol in discovering and maintaining routes have a significant impact on TCP and MANETs in general. In this paper, we investigate the combined effect of contention- induced sp... View full abstract»

  • Spatially Constrained Dissemination of Traffic Information in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

    Distributed traffic information systems apply inter-vehicular ad hoc communication to disseminate information on the current state of road traffic. The high amount of traffic information carried and flooded along the road network leads to frequent appearance of broadcast storms and superfluous forwarding. These negative effects are usually reduced by using rate adaptivity in the dissemination mech... View full abstract»

    Recently, much research work has paid attention to delay tolerant networks (DTNs), which are networks with a frequent occurrences of network partitioning. Since the successful establishment of an end-to-end path between source and destination nodes is not guaranteed in these networks, routing is a challenging issue. In typical routing protocols for DTNs such as epidemic routing, they depend on dat... View full abstract»

  • A Simple Outlier Data Rejection Algorithm for An RSSI-Based ML Location Estimation in Wireless Sensor Networks

    This paper proposes a simple outlier data rejection algorithm for a received signal strength indicator (RSSI)-based maximum likelihood (ML) location estimation in wireless sensor networks. The RSSI-based ML location method usually requires a pre-determined statistical model on the variation of RSSI in a sensing area. However, when estimating the location of a target, due to several reasons, we oft... View full abstract»

    In wireless sensor networks (WSN), the nodes have limited energy resource. So power conservation in individual node is of significant importance. In this paper we derive a cross-layer design method that combines adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) at the physical layer and two sleep modes according to monitoring type at the medium access layer (MAC) in healthcare monitoring WSN, judiciously to ma...

    This paper proposes a distributed incremental quantization and estimation scheme by which each sensor can make a maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) of the unknown parameter based on its local observations and the quantized messages transmitted by the previous sensor. We derive the upper bound of the estimation mean squared error (MSE) of the proposed scheme, and propose the bit allocation algorit... View full abstract»

    A slot assignment (or scheduling) in TDMA based wireless sensor networks (WSNs) considering energy efficiency, scalability and complexity is presented. The algorithm named DNIB is a new TDMA free collision distributed slot assignment algorithm for WSNs. DNIB relies on two-hop neighborhood information. Performance analysis and simulations show that DNIB is scalable and outperforms existing mechanis... View full abstract»
