Wireless sensor networks are application specific and necessitate the development of specific network and information processing architectures that can meet the requirements of the applications involved. A common type of application for wireless sensor networks is the event-driven reactive application, which requires reactive actions to be taken in response to events. In such applications, the interest is in the higher-level information described by complex event patterns, not in the raw sensory data of individual nodes. Although the central processing of information produces the most accurate results, it is not an energy-efficient method because it requires a continuous flow of raw sensor readings over the network. As communication operations are the most expensive in terms of energy usage, the distributed processing of information is indispensable for viable deployments of applications in wireless sensor networks. This method not only helps in reducing the total amount of packets transmitted in the network and the total energy consumed by the sensor nodes, but also produces scalable and fault-tolerant networks. For this purpose, we present two schemes that distribute information processing to appropriate nodes in the network. These schemes use reactive rules, which express relations between event patterns and actions, in order to capture reactive behavior. We also share the results of the performance of our algorithms and the simulations based on our approach that show the success of our methods in decreasing network traffic while still realizing the desired functionality.

Wireless sensor networks are application-specific networks that necessitate the development of specific network and information processing architectures that can meet the requirements of the applications involved. The most important challenge related to wireless sensor networks is the limited energy and computational resources of the battery powered sensor nodes. Although the central processing of information produces the most accurate results, it is not an energy-efficient method because it requires a cont...
Rule-Based In-Network Processing in Wireless Sensor Networks
Sanli, Ozgur; KÖRPEOĞLU, İBRAHİM; Yazıcı, Adnan (2009-07-10)
Wireless sensor networks are application-specific networks, and usually a new network design is required for a new application. In event-driven wireless sensor network applications, the sink node of the network is generally concerned with the higher level information describing the events happening in the network, not the raw sensor data of individual sensor nodes. As the communication is a costly operation in wireless sensor networks, it is important to process the raw data triggering the events inside the...
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...
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...
Investigation of energy efficient traffic adaptive mac layer protocols for multi-hop ad-hoc networks
Senem, Murat; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
Multi Hop Ad-Hoc Networks typically refer to interconnected sensing devices with limited processing, communication, and power capabilities. Self-organization, reliability, and energy efficiency are important issues in these networks. Energy efficient, traffic adaptive, multi-channel, and schedule based MAC Layer protocols have been studied for ad-hoc networks in this thesis. Medium sharing problem is one of the most important topic for multi hop ad-hoc networks, especially under intensive data traffic. In r...
