Energy effiecient wireless sensor network clustering algorithms and their real life performance evaluation

Uyar, Mehmet Erhan
Improvements in technology result in evolution of smart devices. One of such smart devices is wireless sensor nodes, which consist of a sensing board, a battery supply and a wireless antenna to transfer data. We can collect information from the environment by deploying thousands of these tiny smart devices. These devices can also be used to monitor natural habitats or used in giant machine parts for performance evolution. Energy efficient operation is an important issue for wireless sensor network design and clustering is one of the most widely used approaches for energy efficiency. This thesis study aims to analyze the performance of clustering algorithms for wireless sensor networks. We proposed five clustering algorithms and perform experiments by using real sensor hardware over different topologies to investigate energy efficiency of the clustering algorithms.

Routing and security in wireless sensor networks, an experimental evaluation of a proposed trust based routing protocol
Chalabianloo, Niaz; İşler, Veysi; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
Satisfactory results obtained from sensor networks and the ongoing development in electronics and wireless communications have led to an impressive boost in the number of applications based on WSNs. Along with the growth in popularity of WSNs, previously implemented solutions need further improvements and new challenges arise which need to be solved. One of the main concerns regarding WSNs is the existence of security threats against their routing operations. Likelihood of security attacks in a structure su...
