Post-Processing in Wireless Sensor Networks: Benchmarking Sensor Trace Files

Date Added: Oct 2010
Format: PDF

Wireless sensor network research usually focuses on the reliable and efficient collection of data. Here, the authors address the next step in the traces lifetime: they aim at investigating and evaluating, by qualitative and quantitative means, data repositories of already collected measurements. They propose the use of a set of new metrics, which enable reliable evaluation of algorithms using traces (both in average cases and "Stressful" setups) removing the need for running algorithms in a real testbed, at least in the development stage.
