In this paper we introduce our novel concept of Sycophant Wireless Sensors (SWS) which is a static ectoparasitic clandestine sensor network mounted incognito on a mobile agent using only the agent's mobility without intervention. SWS networks not only communicate with each other through mobile WSN but also cooperate with them to form a global hybrid Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Our work develops the SLAM methodology integrating the different type of mobilities of SWS networks and mobile WSN's where the units of the latter network need also to track SWS besides cooperating and maintaining connectivity between the different SWS networks to form a seamless hybrid sensor network. This paper focuses on that latter issue. Demonstrative results are provided on the experimental setup including performance analysis of the methodology which also is conducted in simulation besides the hardware implementation for an elaborate sensitivity analysis to system parameters.

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...
Finding sensing coverage and breach paths in wireless sensor networks
Onur, Ertan; Delic, H (2004-01-01)
Most of the recent studies on wireless sensor networks deal with the communication coverage. However, for the surveillance wireless sensor networks, sensing coverage is an open research area. In this paper, the sensing coverage area of surveillance wireless sensor networks is studied. The sensing coverage is determined by applying Neyman-Pearson Detection Model and Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm is applied to find the weakest breach path. Although individually not enough, breach probability is an approp...
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...
Fault-tolerant topology control in heterogeneous wireless sensor networks
Bağcı, Hakkı; Yazıcı, Adnan; Körpeoğlu, İbrahim; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
Wireless sensor networks have come into prominence for monitoring and tracking operations in many application areas including environmental monitoring, battlefield surveillance, healthcare solutions, vehicle traffic monitoring, smart home systems and many other industrial applications. A long network life time and fault-tolerant operation are two essential requirements for wireless sensor network applications. In order to satisfy these requirements, heterogeneous architectures can be employed in wireless se...
Multilevel object tracking on big graph data using interval type-2 fuzzy systems in wireless multimedia sensor networks
Küçükkeçeci, Cihan; Yazıcı, Adnan; Department of Computer Engineering (2020)
Wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSN) are the key elements of automation systems applied in different domains from home security to immigrant surveillance at a border station. In most of the applications, sensor data needs to be processed for data analytics. However, the interpretation of raw sensor data and unveiling the information inside remains a challenging issue from many aspects. As the interval of the sensor data is frequent, data needs to be treated as big data because of the volume and veloci...
