Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) facilitate efficient data gathering requirements occurring in indoor and outdoor environments. A great deal of WSNs operates by sensing the area-of-interest (AOI) and transmitting the obtained data to a sink/(s). The transmitted data is then utilized in decision making processes. In this regard, security of raw and relayed data is both crucial and susceptible to malicious attempts targeting the task of the network which occurs on the wireless transmission medium. A node, when compromised, may deliberately forward data packets selectively. When this happens, nodes adjacent to the malicious nodes cannot identify the malevolent node and mitigate the effects of the attacks. In this study, we introduce a fuzzy path selection approach that efficiently mitigates single selective forwarding attacks in WSNs. Performance of our proposed approach and its evaluations are simulated and obtained. Our experimental results show that our approach is an effective solution to serve as a defense mechanism in terms of the efficiency metrics, such as Half of the Nodes Alive (HNA), Total Remaining Energy (TRE), and Packet Drop Ratio (PDR).

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) facilitate efficient data gathering requirements occurring in indoor and outdoor environments. A great deal of WSNs operates by monitoring the area-of-interest (AOI) and transmitting the obtained data to a sink. The transmitted data can be utilized for object detection, object classification, instance localization, and high level semantic information extraction processes. In this regard, security of raw and relayed data is both crucial and susceptible to malicious attempts ta...
A cross-layer protocol for wireless sensor networks
Akyildiz, Ian F.; Vuran, Mehmet C.; Akan, Ozgur B. (2006-03-24)
Severe energy constraints of battery-powered sensor nodes necessitate energy-efficient communication protocols in order to fulfill application objectives of wireless sensor networks (WSN). However, the vast majority of the existing solutions are based on classical layered protocols approach. It is much more resource-efficient to have a unified scheme which melts common protocol layer functionalities into a cross-layer module for resource-constrained sensor nodes. To the best of our knowledge, to date, there...
Optimizing the Performance of Rule-Based Fuzzy Routing Algorithms in Wireless Sensor Networks
Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yazıcı, Adnan (2019-06-01)
Effective data routing is one of the crucial themes for energy-efficient communication in wireless sensor networks (WSN). In the WSN research domain, fuzzy approaches are in most cases superior to well-defined methodologies, especially where boundaries between clusters are unclear. For this reason, a significant number of studies have recently proposed fuzzy-based solutions for the problems encountered in WSNs. Rule-based fuzzy systems are part of these widespread fuzzy-based solutions that often involve so...
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 ...

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...
