Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are event-based systems that rely on the collective effort of dense deployed sensor nodes. Due to the dense deployment, since sensor observations are spatially correlated with respect to spatial location of sensor nodes, it may not be necessary for every sensor node to transmit its data. Therefore, due to the resource constraints of sensor nodes it is needed to select the minimum number of sensor nodes to transmit the data to the sink. Furthermore, to achieve the application-specific distortion bound at the sink it is also imperative to select the appropriate reporting frequency of sensor nodes to achieve the minimum energy consumption. In order to address these needs, we propose the new Distributed Node and Rate Selection (DNRS) method which is based on the principles of natural immune system. Based on the B-cell stimulation in immune system, DNR selects the most appropriate sensor nodes that send samples of the observed event, are referred to as designated nodes. The aim of the designated node selection is to meet the event estimation distortion constraint at the sink node with the minimum number of sensor nodes. DNRS enables each sensor node to distributively decide whether it is a designated node or not. In addition, to exploit the temporal correlation in the event data DNRS regulates the reporting frequency rate of each sensor node while meeting the application-specific delay bound at the sink. Based on the immune network principles, DNRS distributively selects the appropriate reporting frequencies of sensor nodes according to the congestion in the forward path and the event estimation distortion periodically calculated at the sink by Adaptive LMS Filter. Performance evaluation shows that DNRS provides the minimum number of designated nodes to reliably detect the event properties and it regulates the reporting frequency of designated nodes to exploit the temporal correlation in the event data whereby it provides the significant energy saving.

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...
Life time sensitive weighted clustering on wireless sensor networks
Alizadeh Jarchlo, Elnaz; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Information Systems (2013)
Wireless Sensor Networks typically include wireless sensor nodes with limited energy. Network lifetime and scalability are considered as two significant requirements for sensor network applications. In order to decrease energy consumption and increase network lifetime one can apply an efficient clustering method. The application of the clustering method proposed in this thesis (LTS-WCA) leads to reducing the energy cost and the transmission distance of each node by grouping the nodes in several clusters and...
Analysis and modeling of routing and security problems in wireless sensor networks with mathematical programming
İncebacak, Davut; Baykal, Nazife; Bıçakcı, Kemal; Department of Information Systems (2013)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are composed of battery powered small sensor nodes with limited processing, memory and energy resources. Self organization property together with infrastructureless characteristics of WSNs make them favorable solutions for many applications. Algorithms and protocols developed for WSNs must consider the characteristics and constraints of WSNs but since battery replenishment is not possible or highly challenging for sensor nodes, one of the major concerns in designing network p...
Spatio-temporal Characteristics of Point and Field Sources in Wireless Sensor Networks
Vuran, Mehmet C.; Akan, Ozgur B. (2006-06-15)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are comprised of densely deployed sensor nodes collaboratively observing and communicating extracted information about a physical phenomenon. Dense deployment of sensor nodes makes the sensor observations highly correlated in the space domain. In addition, consecutive samples obtained by a sensor node are also temporally correlated for the applications involving the observation of the variation of a physical phenomenon. Based on the physical characteristics and dispersion patt...
