Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) form a large part of the ecosystem of the Internet of Things (IoT), hence they have numerous application domains with varying performance and availability requirements. Limited resources that include processing capability, queue capacity, and available energy in addition to frequent node and link failures degrade the performance and availability of these networks. In an attempt to efficiently utilise the limited resources and to maintain the reliable network with efficient data transmission; it is common to select a clustering approach, where a cluster head is selected among the diverse IoT devices. This study presents the stochastic performance as well as the energy evaluation model for WSNs that have both node and link failures. The model developed considers an integrated performance and availability approach. Various duty cycling schemes within the medium-access control of the WSNs are also considered to incorporate the impact of sleeping/idle states that are presented using analytical modeling. The results presented using the proposed analytical models show the effects of factors such as failures, various queue capacities and system scalability. The analytical results presented are in very good agreement with simulation results and also present an important fact that the proposed models are very useful for identification of thresholds between WSN system characteristics.


Investigation of energy efficient traffic adaptive mac layer protocols for multi-hop ad-hoc networks
Senem, Murat; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
Multi Hop Ad-Hoc Networks typically refer to interconnected sensing devices with limited processing, communication, and power capabilities. Self-organization, reliability, and energy efficiency are important issues in these networks. Energy efficient, traffic adaptive, multi-channel, and schedule based MAC Layer protocols have been studied for ad-hoc networks in this thesis. Medium sharing problem is one of the most important topic for multi hop ad-hoc networks, especially under intensive data traffic. In r...
Evaluation of priority dependent and time scheduled MAC layer protocols for ad-hoc networks
Erdeğer, İsmail; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
Ad-hoc networks have very unique features, such as dynamic topologies, relatively limited bandwidth and wireless signal propagation schemes, which present various challenges for wireless communication. In this thesis, control mechanisms for channel access scheduling and topology in ad-hoc networks are evaluated, which utilize the information from two-hop neighborhood to cope with the communication difficulties in ad-hoc networks. Channel assignment is one of the most important topics for ad-hoc networks. Ch...
Quantifying Uncertainty in Internet of Medical Things and Big-Data Services Using Intelligence and Deep Learning
Al-Turjman, Fadi; Zahmatkesh, Hadi; Mostarda, Leonardo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-01-01)
In the cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) environments, quantifying uncertainty is an important element input to keep the acceptable level of reliability in various configurations. In this paper, we aim to address the pricing model of delivering data over the cloud while taking into consideration the dynamic uncertainty factors such as network topology, transmission/reception energy, nodal charge and power, and computation capacity. These uncertainty factors are mapped to different nodes with varying capa...
Path planning for mobile-anchor based wireless sensor network localization: Static and dynamic schemes
Erdemir, Ecenaz; Tuncer, Temel Engin (Elsevier BV, 2018-08-01)
In wireless sensor networks, node locations are required for many applications. Usually, anchors with known positions are employed for localization. Sensor positions can be estimated more efficiently by using mobile anchors (MAs). Finding the best MA trajectory is an important problem in this context. Various path planning algorithms are proposed to localize as many sensors as possible by following the shortest path with minimum number of anchors. In this paper, path planning algorithms for MA assisted loca...
Adoption of Internet of Things in Healthcare Organizations
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2018-01-01)
The Internet of things (IoT) is a paradigm that integrates different types of devices which can operate in any environment with their sensing, communicating, and processing capability. This domain has been a revolutionary changing of healthcare operations by providing a new architecture for devices and applications through IP-based connection capability. Furthermore, IoT is a generic platform to exchange information between mobile health devices and other ubiquitous technologies. Although there have been se...
