    Unobtrusive monitoring of physiological signals in natural settings is important for precision diagnostics. Fully-passive wireless body-worn sensors are viable and promising for unobtrusive monitoring. In this study, the authors present a new class of fully-passive sensor, namely wireless resistive analog passive (WRAP) sensor. It uses resistive transducers at the sensors for converting physical s... View full abstract»

    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been widely applied in many areas for real-time event detection. They are designed using both mobile and static sensor nodes (SNs) for different applications such as smart parking, environmental monitoring, health care systems, automotive industries, sports, open space surveillance, and so on. WSNs communicate through wireless mediums and are accessible to anyo... View full abstract»

  • Robust Kalman filter-based decentralised target search and prediction with topology maps

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):60 - 67
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3017 KB)

    A novel distributed approach for searching and tracking of targets is presented for sensor network environments in which physical distance measurement using techniques such as signal strength is not feasible. The solution consists of a robust Kalman filter combined with a non-linear least-square method, and maximum likelihood topology maps. The primary input for estimating target location and dire...

  • Security DV-hop localisation algorithm against wormhole attack in wireless sensor network

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):68 - 75
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3210 KB)

    Distance vector-hop (DV-hop) is a localisation algorithm based on distance vector routing, which often suffers the wormhole attack. To solve this problem, a security DV-hop localisation algorithm against wormhole attack (AWDV-hop) is proposed. First, the algorithm establishes the neighbour node relationship list (NNRL) by broadcast flooding. All the nodes get the ID numbers of their neighbour node... View full abstract»

  • Sensor relocation for improved target tracking

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):76 - 86
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5128 KB)

    In many practical scenarios, targets tend to have certain mobility trends such as following a traverseable terrain, having a common starting/destination locations, or moving in a region with abundant resources. This work is interested in exploring the possible gain from sensor relocation in improving the localisation accuracy of targets that follow mobility trends similar to those previously obser...

  • µKMS: micro key management system for WSNs

    Publication Year: 2018, Page(s):87 - 97
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4526 KB)

    Key management is the basic building block of all the security protocols and is one of the most challenging issues in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Centralising a trusted key management server is not an appropriate solution in such fully distributed networks. On the other hand, designing a distributed key management system is a challenging task, due to the constrained characteristics of sensor ... View full abstract»
