Recently, environment monitoring and detection systems became more accessible with the help of IoT applications. Furthermore, connecting smart devices makes monitoring applications more accurate and reliable. On the other hand, optimizing the energy requirement of smart sensors especially while transmitting data has always been very important, and there are different applications to create energy efficient IoT systems. Detailed analysis of lifetimes of various types of sensors (survival analysis) has therefore become essential. For the environment monitoring scenarios, with the help of smart multimedia sensors, more precise and accurate real-time information can be extracted. Video and audio sensors can be used as complementary mechanisms to have more accurate information. However, transmission of visual data is known to be one of the most costly operations for wireless multimedia sensor networks. To minimize energy consumption, visual data transmission should be minimized. In this thesis, a novel hierarchical approach is presented for emergency applications. Proposed framework makes use of multimedia and scalar sensors hierarchically to minimize the visual data transmission and in turn energy consumption. In addition, edge computing is introduced where lightweight machine learning algorithms are used for edge processing to prevent unnecessary data transmission. The heterogeneous sensor network architecture is applied within the domain of forest fire detection systems. Proposed framework is evaluated in terms of accuracy of detection as well as energy efficiency. The results are quite promising with validation accuracy of 98.20% and 29.94% energy saving compared to multimedia sensor based surveillance systems.

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...

A generic framework for optimizing performance metrics by tuning parameters of clustering protocols in WSNs
Alchihabi, Abdullah; Dervis, Ates; Ever, Enver; Al-Turjman, Fadi;( Abstracts: Wireless sensor network (WSN) is a key technology trend in emerging internet of things paradigms which are commonly used for application areas such as smart-cities, smart-grids, wearables, and connected health. There is a wealth of literature which considers various cluster-based routing protocols such as LEACH, HEED, and UHEED where these protocols are compared in terms of the network lifetime and/or the total number of packets successfully received by the base station under various operational conditions. While existing studies present various approaches to form WSN clusters in the most efficient way, various parameters are manually-assigned their values such as the radius of the cluster, the number of nodes in the cluster, and the number of clusters that should be formed to reach the base station. The choice of correct parameters is essential for reaching the most efficient configuration, however existing studies do not specify a systematic way for tuning these parameters. In other words, the optimization of cluster-based WSNs through fine tuning of related system parameters is not considered in the existing studies. We believe that presenting a generic approach to tune the parameters of clustering algorithms in order to optimize the performance metrics of WSNs is a significant contribution. In this study a systematic and an efficient method is presented to tune the parameters of clustering and routing protocols. Instead of brute force, or trial and error approaches, simulated annealing and K-beams algorithms are adopted together with discrete event system simulator OMNET++ with Castalia Framework. Results are presented comparatively with brute force approach in order to show the efficiency of the new approach in finding the optimum configuration in terms of energy efficiency as well as the rate of successfully received packets.; 2019-04-01)
