    Outlier detection (OD) constitutes an important issue for many research areas namely data mining, medicines, and sensor networks. It is helpful mainly in identifying intrusion, fraud, errors, defects, noise and so on. In fact, outlier measurements are essential improvements to quality of information, as they are not conforming to expected normal behaviour. Due to the importance of sensed measureme...

    Haze occurs frequently in many cities, and becomes the authors' great common concern. A distributed real-time monitoring system for atmospheric particles has been designed, implemented and tested. The proposed system consists of a front-end data wireless acquisition network, an embedded web server system, a central server and remote monitoring terminals. The front-end data-acquisition network is m... View full abstract»

    As a low-cost distance measurement method, received signal strength (RSS) is often used for indoor wireless sensor localisation. However, RSS values can be easily influenced by multi-path fading, noise and other environmental parameters. This decreases the accuracy and stability of estimated distance. To improve localisation accuracy, this study proposes a multiplicative distance-correction factor... View full abstract»

  • Medium access control schemes for flat mobile wireless sensor networks

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):105 - 112

    One aspect of mobile wireless sensor networks (MWSNs) is the medium access control (MAC) protocol, which is critical in terms of reliability, delay and energy consumption. This work begins with a literature review, showing that the majority of MWSN MACs are designed for hierarchical architectures, demonstrating that there is a lack of MACs intended for flat architecture MWSNs. Subsequently, the au... View full abstract»

  • Evolving attackers against wireless sensor networks using genetic programming

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):113 - 122
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3785 KB)

    Recent hardware developments have made it possible for the Internet of Things (IoT) to be built. A wide variety of industry sectors, including manufacturing, utilities, agriculture, transportation, and healthcare are actively seeking to incorporate IoT technologies in their operations. The increased connectivity and data sharing that give IoT systems their advantages also increase their vulnerabil... View full abstract»
