Energy efficient operation is often critical for wireless sensor networks (WSN), because network nodes operate on limited batteries. The aim of this thesis is to realize an implementation of an energy-efficient, scalable and competitive clustering protocol, HEED on MICAz motes using TinyOS 2 with further energy-efficiency enhancements. A working testbed is constructed, on which the network organizes itself to send periodic sensor measurements to a central station. In order to control overall energy consumption, power aware routing, topology control, time synchronization, sleep scheduling and transmision power adaptation problems are experimentally studied on the testbed.

Path planning and localization for mobile anchor based wireless sensor networks

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...

The vision of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) is to provide real-time multimedia applications using wireless sensors deployed for long-term usage. Quality of service assurances for both best effort data and real-time multimedia applications introduced new challenges in prioritizing multipath routing protocols in WMSNs. Multipath routing approaches with multiple constraints have received considerable research interest. In this paper, a comprehensive survey of both best effort data and real-time m...
Communication Coverage in Wireless Passive Sensor Networks
Bereketli, Alper; Akan, Ozgur B. (2009-02-01)
System lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSN) is inversely proportional to the energy consumed by critically energy-constrained sensor nodes during RF transmission. In that regard, modulated backscattering (MB) is a promising design choice, in which sensor nodes send their data just by switching their antenna impedance and reflecting the incident signal coming from an RF source. Hence, wireless passive sensor networks (WPSN) designed to operate using MB do not have the lifetime constraints of convention...
Query based energy efficient clustering methods for wireless sensor networks
Koşar, Onur; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2011)
In Wireless Sensor Networks, designing a low overhead routing protocol is crucial for prolonging network lifetime. Wireless sensor nodes depend on limited batteries and if they run out of battery, they cannot contribute to the sensing. There are lots of studies aimed at prolonging network lifetime. One of the methods to extend life time of the wireless sensor networks is clustering. In clustering approaches main aim is to prevent unnecessary messaging and decrease number of messages exchanged by aggregating...
A Low-complexity, near-optimal scheduling policy for solving a restless multi-armed bandit problem occurring in a single-hop wireless network /
Gül, Ömer Melih; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Power resources and battery lifetime are important issues for wireless networks such as wireless sensor networks (WSNs). To extend the battery lifetime, the recent advances in energy harvesting (EH) techniques propose an effective solution. EH nodes can harvest energy from environmental sources (e.g. solar, wind, vibrational, thermal) to power their sensing, computing and communication functions. In this thesis, we develop a solution to a scheduling problem under three scheduling scenarios. Firstly, we cons...
