    Recent advances in ambient energy-harvesting technologies have made it possible to power wireless sensor networks (WSNs) from the environment for long durations. However, the energy availability in an energy-harvesting WSN varies with time and thus may cause the network topology to evolve over time. In this paper, we study the topology design problem in a time-evolving and energy-harvesting WSN wh... View full abstract»

    Though much existing work exploits wireless power charging to enhance sensor network performance such as routing and data aggregation, few efforts focus on issues of stochastic event capture. In this paper, we consider the scenario in which a mobile charger (MC) periodically travels within a sensor network to recharge the sensors wirelessly, to maximize the Quality of Monitoring (QoM) for stochast...

    Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) is that the energy stored in the batteries of electric vehicles can be utilized to send back to the power grid. And then, the energy in the batteries of electric vehicles can move with electric vehicles (EVs). Based on above characteristics, this paper introduces the concept of a mobile electrical grid and discusses the energy routing problem. It focuses on the optimization p... View full abstract»

    There has been a growing interest to employ the so-called degree-of-freedom (DoF) based models to study multihop MIMO networks. Existing DoF-based models differ in their interference cancelation (IC) behavior and suffer from either loss of solution space or possible infeasible solutions. Recently, a DoF model based on a novel node-ordering concept was proposed to overcome the limitations of the ex... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (276 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we study the connectivity of multihop wireless networks with the log-normal shadowing model by investigating the critical transmission power required by each node for asymptotic vanishing of the isolated notes in the network. The vanishing of isolated nodes is not only a prerequisite but also a good indication of network connectivity. All previous known work on network connectivity ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (259 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Sensor node localization is a challenging task because of severe constraints on cost, energy, and effective range of sensor devices. To overcome limitations in existing solutions, this paper formally describes, designs, implements, and evaluates a Convex Optimization-based Method for Event-Driven Localization, i.e., COMEDL, in large-scale wireless sensor networks. The key idea behind COMEDL is to ... View full abstract»

    Cooperative caching is an effective approach to share cache copies among network nodes and then reduce data access cost in ad hoc networks. Since cached data may be privacy sensitive, privacy preservation should be considered. In this paper, we study this problem by achieving anonymity in cooperative caching. Our anonymous caching protocol borrows idea from anonymous routing protocols. Data query ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we investigate the predictability of packet arrivals in asynchronous duty-cycling wireless sensor networks (WSNs). We conduct statistical analysis on data traces collected in both outdoor large-scale and indoor testbed WSN to show that traditional well-known traffic models, e.g., Poisson process and Self-similarity process, do not fit well for modeling packet arrivals in both networ...

    The dominant spectrum sharing paradigm of today is the interweave paradigm. This paper advocates a new and alternative paradigm called United network of Primary and Secondary networks (UPS). UPS allows a complete cooperation between primary and secondary networks at the node level to relay each other's traffic, in addition to existing dynamic spectrum access (DSA) in time, space, and frequency dom...

    Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is widely used in the the retail, warehouse and supply chain management. However, unknown RFID tags appear when the unregistered tagged objects are moved in or tagged objects are misplaced, which leads to huge economic losses (e.g., misplaced chilled food in a warehouse may quickly decay).

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (705 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Time synchronization is critical for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) because data fusion and duty cycling schemes all rely on synchronized schedules. Traditional synchronization protocols assume that wireless channels are available around the clock. However, this assumption is not true for WSNs deployed in intertidal zones. In this paper, we present TACO, a synchronization scheme for WSNs with int... View full abstract»
