Finite-horizon online energy-efficient transmission scheduling schemes for communication links

Bacınoğlu, Baran Tan
The proliferation of embedded systems, mobile devices, wireless sensor applications and increasing global demand for energy directed research attention toward self-sustainable and environmentally friendly systems. In the field of communications, this new trend pointed out the need for study of energy constrained communication and networking. Particularly, in the literature, energy efficient transmission schemes have been well studied for various cases. However, fundamental results have been obtained mostly for offline problems which are not applicable to practical implementations. In contrast, this thesis focuses on online counterparts of offline transmission scheduling problems and provides a theoretical background for energy efficient online transmission schemes. The proposed heuristics, Expected Threshold and Expected Water Level policies, promise an adequate solution which can adapt to short-time-scale dynamics while being computationally efficient.

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...

Path planning and localization for mobile anchor based wireless sensor networks
Erdemir, Ecenaz; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
In wireless sensor networks, sensors with limited resources are distributed in a wide area. Localizing the sensors is an important problem. Anchor nodes with known positions are used for sensor localization. A simple and efficient way of generating anchor nodes is to use mobile anchors which have built-in GPS units. In this thesis, a single mobile anchor is used to traverse the region of interest to communicate with the sensor nodes and identify their positions. Therefore planning the best trajectory for th...
Energy-Aware Data Delivery Framework for Safety-Oriented Mobile IoT
Al-Turjman, Fadi (2018-01-01)
The proliferation of wireless multimedia sensor networks has given rise to intelligent transportation systems as a mobile data-sharing model. This vision can be extended under the umbrella of the mobile Internet of Things to include versatile resources, such as smartphones, radio frequency identification tags, and sensors on roads that can be utilized in emergency situations. The facilitation of such a vision faces key challenges in terms of interoperability, resource management and energy consumption. In t...
