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 is no unified cross-layer communication protocol for efficient and reliable event communication which considers transport, routing, medium access functionalities with physical layer (wireless channel) effects for WSNs.


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...

Yazici, Adnan; Koyuncu, Murat; Sert, Seyyit Alper; Yilmaz, Turgay (2019-01-01)
Multimedia sensors enable monitoring applications to obtain more accurate and detailed information. However, the development of efficient and lightweight solutions for managing data traffic over wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) has become vital because of the excessive volume of data produced by multimedia sensors. As part of this motivation, this paper proposes a fusion-based WMSN framework that reduces the amount of data to be transmitted over the network by intra-node processing. This framewor...

Previous advances in Information Technologies and especially in Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems, have made the Production and deployment of tiny, battery-powered nodes communicating over wireless links possible. Networks comprised of such nodes with sensing capability are called Wireless Sensor Networks. The early deployment aim was to use these nodes only in a passive way for indoor applications. These kinds of early nodes had the ability to sense scalar data such as temperature, humidity, pressure and lo...
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...
Exploiting energy-aware spatial correlation in wireless sensor networks
Shah, Ghalib A.; Bozyigit, Muslim (2007-01-12)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) promise fine-grain monitoring in a wide variety of applications, which require dense sensor nodes deployment. Due to high density of nodes, spatially redundant or correlated data is generated. Redundancy increases the reliability level of information delivery but increases the energy consumption of the nodes too. Since energy conservation is a key issue for WSNs, therefore, spatial correlation can be exploited to deactivate some of the nodes generating redundant information. ...
