    Bluetooth Scatternet Tree Formation for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Wireless sensor and actor networks based on Bluetooth technology require an algorithm to build up and maintain a Bluetooth scatternet. Although much research has been done, actual deployment is rare because a self-organizing and self-healing procedure suitable for actual Bluetooth nodes has not yet been developed. The authors present the...

    In-Network-Aggregation as Case Study for a Support Tool Reducing the Complexity of Designing Secure Wireless Sensor Networks

    This paper shows how complex security-related design decisions in wireless sensor networks can be made less difficult with a proposed supporting tool. As case study in this paper the authors focus on in-network-aggregation which is a promising option to reduce network effort. They introduce several algorithms for concealed data aggregation,...
