Wireless sensor networks suffer from some limitations such as energy constraints and the cooperative demands essential to perform multi-hop geographic routing for real-time applications. Quality of Service (QoS) depends to a great extent on offering participating nodes an incentive for collaborating. In this paper, we present a novel traffic model for a new-generation of sensor networks that supports a wide range of communication-intensive real-time multimedia applications. The model is used to investigate the effects of multi-hop communication on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) via Markov discrete time M/M/1 queuing system. Moreover, an analytical formulation for the bit error rate (BER), and the critical path-loss model is presented. We address the degree of irregularity parameter for location-based switching with respect to two categories in distributed retransmission: the hop-by-hop and the end-to-end retransmission. Simulation results based on realistic case study and assumptions are performed to highlight the effects on the average packet delay, energy consumption, and network throughput. The findings presented in this work are of great help to designers of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs).

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...

Distributed sensor networks have been discussed for more than 30 years, but the vision of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) has been brought into reality only by the rapid advancements in the areas of sensor design, information technologies, and wireless networks that have paved the way for the proliferation of WSNs. The unique characteristics of sensor networks introduce new challenges, amongst which prolonging the sensor lifetime is the most important. WSNs have seen a tremendous growth in various applicati...

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...

Chamanian, Salar; Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Baghaee, Sajjad; Uysal, Elif; Külah, Haluk (2016-10-01)
This paper presents a battery-less wireless sensor network (WSN) equipped with electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters and sensor nodes with adjustable time-interval based on stored the energy. A wearable EM energy harvesting system is developed and optimized to power-up a typical wireless sensor mote from body motion. This is realized through characterization of the body motion and design of a compact EM energy harvester according to vibration frequencies generated during human running and walking. The harv...
Communication Coverage in Wireless Passive Sensor Networks
Bereketli, Alper; Akan, Ozgur B. (2009-02-01)
System lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSN) is inversely proportional to the energy consumed by critically energy-constrained sensor nodes during RF transmission. In that regard, modulated backscattering (MB) is a promising design choice, in which sensor nodes send their data just by switching their antenna impedance and reflecting the incident signal coming from an RF source. Hence, wireless passive sensor networks (WPSN) designed to operate using MB do not have the lifetime constraints of convention...
