    Distributed Duty Cycle Management (DDCM) for IEEE 802.15.4 Beacon-Enabled Wireless Mesh Sensor Networks

    This paper proposes an extension to the current IEEE802.15.4 standard in which flexible mesh networking in the low power beacon mode is enabled through the use of a distributed Duty Cycle Management (DDCM) strategy in conjunction with a Distributed Time Beacon Scheduling (DTBS) technique. The DTBS technique enables a beacon...

    DCLA: A Duty-Cycle Learning Algorithm for IEEE 802.15.4 Beacon-Enabled WSNs

    The current specification for IEEE 802.15.4 beacon-enabled networks does not define how active and sleep schedules should be configured in order to achieve the optimal network performance in all traffic conditions. Several algorithms exist in the literature that dynamically varies these schedules based on traffic load estimations. But it is...

    Guaranteeing Reliable Communications in Mesh Beacon-Enabled IEEE802.15.4 WSN for Industrial Monitoring Applications

    Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are a very promising solution for industrial monitoring applications in terms of safety, costs, efficiency and productivity. However, in order to move from the adopted manual/wired designs to wireless designs, certain guarantees must be assured, especially in terms of reliability, bandwidth and message transmission delays. Although...

    D-SeDGAM: A Dynamic Service Differentiation Based GTS Allocation Mechanism for IEEE 802.15.4 WSN

    The plethora of applications for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has experienced significant growth in recent years. Every application has a different set of requirements and it is highly desirable for all of them to share the available resources in an optimized way. The IEEE 802.15.4 standard for WSN includes Guaranteed...

    A Wireless Sensor Network Design Tool to Support Building Energy Management

    The performance of a network is strongly influenced by the location and deployment of the sensor nodes. It is judged on the yardsticks of accuracy in data sensing and reliability in communication. Hence, deployment planning must be done meticulously. It is the stepping stone to structuring a successful and viable...

    Multi-Objective Cross-Layer Algorithm for Routing Over Wireless Sensor Networks

    With wireless sensor networks popularity growth, numerous cross-layer routing protocols have been proposed. These proposals are mainly designed to address the limitations in energy resources of the sensor nodes. However, advances in technology have led to a wide variety of possible applications with many different requirements. The routing protocol should...

    Application Driven Routing for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks - A Necessity

    Vehicular communications is regarded as being a major innovative feature for in-car technology. At present, all major industrialised countries are actively promoting research focusing on this issue and car manufacturers are pushing product development through in-house research and standardisation efforts. Vehicular communications can be used in a diverse range of...
