Finding sensing coverage and breach paths in wireless sensor networks

Onur, Ertan
Delic, H
Most of the recent studies on wireless sensor networks deal with the communication coverage. However, for the surveillance wireless sensor networks, sensing coverage is an open research area. In this paper, the sensing coverage area of surveillance wireless sensor networks is studied. The sensing coverage is determined by applying Neyman-Pearson Detection Model and Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm is applied to find the weakest breach path. Although individually not enough, breach probability is an appropriate parameter to justify the required number of sensor nodes and reliability of the network. Analyzing the parameters of the Neyman-Pearson, the most significant parameter is determined to be the false alarm rate. Increasing the false alarm rate, decreases the breach probability because Neyman-Pearson Detection Model tolerates that amount of alarms to be false.


On the quality of deployment in wireless sensor networks
Onur, Ertan; Delic, H (2005-01-01)
When wireless sensors are used to keep an area under surveillance, a critical issue is the quality of the deployment from the sensing coverage viewpoint. In this paper, we propose several quality measures, which indicate if the deployment provides sufficient coverage, or whether redeployment is required or not. The terrain is modelled as a grid and the placement of the sensors is uniformly distributed. Neyman-Pearson detection is utilized to determine the effects of false alarm and signal characteristics on...
Impacts of Routing Attacks on Surveillance Wireless Sensor Networks
Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yazıcı, Adnan; Coşar, Ahmet (2015-08-25)
Surveillance Wireless Sensor Networks (SWSNs) are the result of abundant data gathering requirements occurring in Wireless Sensor Networks, specifically for surveillance reasons. Most SWSNs operate by sensing the environment and transmitting the acquired data to a sink in order to utilize it for decision making processes such as object detection, classification, localization, or event detection. In this respect, secure routing of acquired data is crucial since a decision making process is performed accordin...
An Efficient Fuzzy Fusion-Based Framework for Surveillance Applications in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yazıcı, Adnan; Coşar, Ahmet; Yilmazer, Cengiz (2014-08-08)
This study is focused on a new approach for addressing the trade-off between accuracy and energy-efficiency of Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks. Although a number of previous studies have focused on various special topics in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks in detail, to best of our knowledge, none presents a fuzzy multi-modal data fusion system, which is light-weight and provides a high accuracy ratio. Especially, multi-modal data fusion targeting surveillance applications make it inevitable to work ...
A Survey on Multipath Routing Protocols for QoS Assurances in Real-Time Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Hasan, Mohammed Zaki; Al-Rizzo, Hussain; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2017-01-01)
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...
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...
