Collaborative Area Monitoring Using Wireless Sensor Networks with Stationary and Mobile Nodes

This paper investigates the use of signal processing techniques in the path planning of mobile agents for improving the area monitoring in the context of WSNs. The main contribution of this paper is that it investigates a family of path planning algorithms and proposes a distributed algorithm that is fairly simple; it relies only on local information (i.e., information collected from the mobile’s neighborhood) and can achieve very good performance. The strategy used by each mobile is based on receding horizon optimization and is motivated by the approach presented in [4] where two or more agents are moving in an area cooperatively searching for targets of interest and avoiding obstacles or threats. At every step, the mobile node tries to move toward, the least covered area, and at the same time it avoids areas covered by other nodes. In the context of WSNs, several approaches exist for identifying the point where a mobile node should go in order to improve the area coverage (for details see Section 6). All these approaches solve a static problem and to the best of our knowledge, none of them considers the path that the mobile node should follow in order to get to its destination.

(EERSM): Energy Efficient Multi Hop Routing Technique in Wireless Sensor Networks Based on Combination between Stationary and Mobile Nodes

(EERSM): Energy Efficient Multi Hop Routing Technique in Wireless Sensor Networks Based on Combination between Stationary and Mobile Nodes

The second performance metric is the average residual energy. The forward- ing phase in routing with blacklisting technique needs every node to search for their nearest node in order to turn on the transceiver and send the packets to a centralized sink node. In addition; mobile nodes move randomly around the sink node in order to carry packets. However, this scenario needs many control messages to be sent between the sink node and the mobile nodes in order to de- tect the right mobile node to carry the packets. This makes the energy consump- tion increase. Also, sensor nodes in CBR Mobile-WSN technique need to search for a free cluster head in order to avoid packets loss which increases the energy consumption. In CBR Mobile-WSN technique many control messages need to be sent in order to give a permission for a mobile node to enter a cluster which consume more power, while in the proposed EERSM technique the mobile nodes move from one intersected area to another without the necessity to send control messages. Mobile nodes deliver their packets to the right position ( i.e. the right intersected area) and then return to their pre-assigned positions in or- der to carry more packets. Figure 9 shows the residual energy for the three tech- niques verses the simulation rounds.

Optimal Route Planning with Mobile Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks

Optimal Route Planning with Mobile Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks

The main contribution of this thesis is the investigation of path planning approaches and the subsequent planning of routes for mobile nodes to take for certain objectives. The specific aim of this thesis is the development of a path planning technique using mobile nodes for the improvement or maximization of area coverage. This method will be used on both a sparse and dense WSN with stationary sensor nodes and mobile nodes. The algorithm is a deterministic approach using coverage hole coordinates and static node information. Once the information is fed back to the mobile sensor node, it will determine an optimal path through each coverage hole. It will also try to avoid passing over already covered regions in the path planning phase. The aim of this technique is to improve area coverage of the network to an optimal level. An approach to do so in the minimum amount of time is also proposed. Specifically, the contribution is to: 1) Develop a path planning protocol to achieve 1-degree coverage over a set period of time using WSN with mobile nodes. At any one point in time the coverage degree is less than one. However, when the path of the mobile nodes are taken into account, the overall degree coverage from the time it takes the mobile nodes to traverse its complete path should be 1-degree coverage. 3.2.2 Importance of Area Coverage

A Survey of Energy Consumption Routing Protocols in Wireless Sensor Networks

A Survey of Energy Consumption Routing Protocols in Wireless Sensor Networks

Abstract - Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is networks which consist of large number of low cost sensing nodes disseminating in the geographical region. The energy of sensing nodes is restricted for sensing various kinds of network data and then transmitting the data to other nodes or the destination. WSN are accruing much more attention in handling complex situations and functions. Wireless sensor networks are used for large number of purposes in military surveillance, habitat monitoring, forest-fire detections, landslide detections etc. The processing of sensor nodes requires battery power to use the energy in order to increase the effective network lifetime in heterogeneous topology. This paper presents the various routing protocols focuses on both the static and mobile nodes for heterogeneous wireless sensor networks to reduce the energy consumption and hence focusing on stability period, network lifetime, increasing energy efficiency and number of alive nodes. The comparison study of various WSN protocols is also presented in this paper which mainly focuses on the energy consumption parameter in the wireless network.

An Efficient Localization Method for Mobile Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks

An Efficient Localization Method for Mobile Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks

Designing a suitable WSN mobile node localization algorithm has become a hot research issue. Many scientists are trying to find a more efficient method to this end. In 2004, the MCL algorithm was applied to the localization of mobile WSNs by Hu and Evans for the first time [3]. Baggio proposed the Monte Carlo Localization Boxed (MCB) algorithm, which improves the sampling efficiency to a certain extent by es- tablishing a sampling constraint box [4]. Wang (2007) proposed an adaptive sampling algorithm. Exactly speaking, in the location prediction stage, the number of samples is adjusted according to the area of the anchor box [5]. Hamid and Mehdi proposed a uniform sampling algorithm in the sampling box instead of the random sampling algorithm in MCL, which can effectively avoid the sample points to a region [6]. Rudafshani and Datta (2009) introduced the common neighbor node for the current node localization, and proposed the MSL algorithm. At the same time, this algorithm needs to transmit the sample and weight of the previous moment to the neighbor node, which leads to a large cost in communication [7]. Zhu et al., (2007) used received signal strength indication (RSSI) to calculate the distance between nodes, and then used the distance value for the MCL algorithm [8]. To a certain extent, this algorithm solves the initial positioning accuracy.

Mobile beacon based adaptive time synchronization for wireless sensor networks

Mobile beacon based adaptive time synchronization for wireless sensor networks

Time synchronization of clocks in the sensor nodes for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a fundamental technology for most mission-critical applications. Most of past research in time synchronization for WSNs, however, has only focused on achieving some of the goals at a time, such as accuracy, energy consumption, completion time, etc., making these solutions less capable of adapting to different application requirements. In this paper, we propose a new time synchronization algorithm named MBATS (mobile beacon-based adaptive time synchronization) in which a mobile beacon is employed to move or fly over the sensor deployment area to complete time synchronization. Moreover, MBATS is designed so that the number of sensor nodes that are synchronized by one instance of time synchronization from the mobile beacon could vary dynamically to meet application requirements on accuracy, completion time and energy consumption, making the proposed MBATS algorithm highly adaptable to different application requirements. In addition to showing the advantage of the proposed MBATS algorithm on the adaptability of time synchronization as well as on some of the main metrics of synchronization over comparable schemes for WSNs, we also present the results of our study on comparing the performance of letting the mobile beacon traverse along a designing path versus follow a random path. Such a study is important since it would allow us to learn the performance gains that we can expect to achieve with extra control effort spent on designing the path over the effortless random path strategy. Such study could provide us with some clues on how to choose a suitable time synchronization strategy to better meet application requirements, which may not necessarily be the designed path strategy due to the tradeoff between cost and performance gains.

Review on Optimization Structure for Data Collection in Wireless Sensor Networks

Review on Optimization Structure for Data Collection in Wireless Sensor Networks

Liu (2006) analyzed a deployment strategy of sensor nodes to extend the life time for multi-hop wireless sensor networks are addressed based on load-balancing concept. An algorithm is proposed to deployment homogeneous sensor in a wireless network within a given number of nodes which are continuously monitoring an area of interest. The densities of sensor nodes are determined by solving optimization problem. It has extended lifetime and break down more gracefully than that for 2-D Poisson distribution while maintaining satisfactory coverage. Node failure does not concentrate on this research. So, it has more number of redundant nodes. The artificial Ant colony optimization algorithm proposed by way of Mahboubi and Labeau(2015) .It described a Voronoi- primarily based diagram which assigns a distinct region to each sensor within the presence of limitations such that the regions are at the same time disjointed. If one sensor cannot cowl a factor interior it’s any region, no different sensor can detect it both. The proposed diagram referred to as obstructed guaranteed additively weighted (OGAW) Voronoi diagram is the main tool for developing the sensor deployment algorithms in a network of mobile sensors with non identical sensing tiers within the presence of limitations. This proposed algorithm is used to improving the Prioritized insurance .energy intake issue does no longer discussed on this research. Zhang (2010) defined the effects of spatial and temporal distribution on the node deployment is considered. Firstly the amount of data transmission network is calculated, taking the spatial distribution of the events and coverage effects into concern. Exploiting this result the energy balance equation is proposed based on the temporal density of the events, for estimating the network lifetime the non-uniform deployment of nodes should be leveraged to balance the energy consumption by deploying more nodes close to the sink. Where Spatial and temporal distributions of events greatly influence the strategy of the node deployment, for balancing the energy consumption of the network and Unpredictable deployment will occur. Bartolini and Calamoneri (2011) investigated an autonomous deployment algorithm that guarantees the adaption of sensor density to the sink proximity and enables their selective activation. The proposed algorithm also permits a fault tolerance and self-healing deployment, dynamic reallocation and selective sensor activation. The proposed algorithm efficiently reaches a deployment at the desired variable density with moderate energy consumption under a wide range of operative settings. Where high delay overhead for adaption.

Hybrid Mobile Ad Hoc Delay Tolerant Network for Optimum Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Hybrid Mobile Ad Hoc Delay Tolerant Network for Optimum Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

In the existing system, AODV protocol is employed that establishes connection whenever there is a demand thereby minimizing the traffic while communication along the links. But, as the level of trust in the network cannot be estimated, compromised nodes may interfere with route discovery process and head off the control packets to disturb communication. In Delay Tolerant Network (DTN), these intermittent communication issues are addressed and resolved by enhancing communication over the most unstable and stressed environments where the probability of network disruptions is high. Thus, the sufficiency of DTN copes up the insufficiency of AODV by devising a hybrid network. In the proposed work, monitoring of misbehaving nodes in MANET and detecting the black hole attack using delay tolerant network has been combined. Thus, a hybrid network (AODV with DTN) is proposed which increases the throughput ratio and packet transmission ratio and decreases the overall delay.

Mobility Conscious Medium Access Control Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Conceptual Approach

Mobility Conscious Medium Access Control Scheme for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Conceptual Approach

In WSN, to extend the battery lifetime, protocols at the data link layer usually put sensors in a sleep mode most of the time, and only let nodes wake up periodically for data communication. This mode of operation, which trades network metrics for energy saving, proves to be very effective in stationary network, where con- nection formations and break-ups are rare events. However, these protocols, which are customized for stationary networks, do not work well in mobile scenarios such as a patient assistance system which monitors patients’ health conditions via wearable bio-sensors, workers equipped with sensor device in disaster recovery situation, soldiers in battle field, and to provide these with appropriate care when needed [3].

Mobile Relay As Doze Nodes In Data-Intensive Wireless Sensor Networks

Mobile Relay As Doze Nodes In Data-Intensive Wireless Sensor Networks

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are increasingly used in data-intensive applications such as microclimate monitoring, precision agriculture, and audio/video surveillance. A key challenge faced by data-intensive WSNs is to transmit all the data generated within an application’s lifetime to the base station despite the fact that sensor nodes have limited power supplies. We propose using low cost disposable mobile relays as doze nodes to reduce the energy consumption of data-intensive WSNs. Our approach differs from previous work in one main aspect. Mobile relay does not actively forward data from source node to base station but continues to listen to the source nodes and monitors the signal level around it. It gets active and forward the data from source node to base station, when there is a noticeable change in the signal level. In the sleeping time of the mobile relay, it does not consume more energy. Finally this technique produces an efficient energy optimization that can be integrated in the system that can be used in the data-intensive applications. We further conduct extensive simulations to examine the efficiency of our technique with varied network settings.

Remote Patient Identification based on ECG and Heart Beat Pattern over Wireless Channel

In the present era, Body area sensor networks (BANs) acts as an effective technology due to its unbeatable features like simple usage, safe, and application in health sector [1]. These are used in number of ways such as in tracking the fitness trackers [2], in crucial following of emergency response teams [3], and in the medical implantable devices like heart pacemakers and insulin pumps. These kinds of medical and safety related applications of BAN require a decent class of controlling of access to them and proper and secured data [4–7]. For economical and practical reasons, the size of the nodes is not big considering the expense and practical application. These are resource - constrained and they give computation power and memory up to a particular limit. If we look in the recent past years, we will feel that the use of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology has increased quickly. Among a number of applications, an important one is in wireless biomedical sensor network for collecting physiological signals. We can define the Wireless Body Area Network (WBAN) as a wireless network useful for making communication among operating sensor nodes on, in or around the body of an individual with the end purpose to evaluate the important body measurements and functions. The above-mentioned monitoring signals are after this collected by a personal device, such as Personal Digital Assistance (PDA) or smart phone that works as a data sink for the sensor nodes and transfers them to the specialist for further monitoring. In WBAN nodes are placed on the body, and communication protocol is to be developed for end to end secure information transfer [4]. In wireless body area network, the developed protocols are based on the distance among sensors and energy of the nodes [2-5].

Various Routing Parameters in SHM using WSN

Various Routing Parameters in SHM using WSN

SHM projects can be divided into those undertaken over a short term for research purposes, and those performed over a long period for long term health monitoring. The short-term projects typically involve a relatively large number of sensors, many hundreds of meters of cable and a multi-channel recording system. This can take many days to set up. For long term monitoring projects, typically from one to three accelerometers are installed at key points within the structure and possibly cabled together [11-15]. The reason for this small number of sensors is the cost of the equipment and its installation and operation.

channel. The cost effective wireless communication plays a vital role in wireless sensor network because the installation of wireless sensor network is too easy and cost effective. At the beginning of the sensor network, the sensor node deployment is a major issue for researchers which means the suitable deployment strategy will give better sensor network. Such sensor node deployment can be done with random manner as well as deterministic manner. The sensor node thrown from the helicopter or air vehicle for military surveillance applications which is called random deployment. Each node doesn‟t know its own location and some of the node might not be dropped within the coverage area of the neighbor node. It requires mobility to reach the communication range of Abstract: Now a day’s, we are very much interested in smart Agricultural field. As per smart envision of agriculture, the sensors are playing a vital role to measure physical parameters of the field. To make a smart agricultural field, it requires multiple sensor node which should be deployed in stipulated places based on the internal characteristics of the node. In this paper, the deployment of nodes are mainly depends on to cover a deterministic area and utilize the minimum number of nodes to get maximum coverage of the field (‘K’ coverage). In this research analyzes, it has been analyzed an effective sensor nodes deployment Strategies to get ‘K’ coverage as well as analyzed geometric routing to get less energy consumption. The sensor nodes are deployed under two different conditions for getting maximum coverage by using minimum number of sensors of deterministic area. As well as it has been analyzed an energy efficient geometric routing by utilizing the geometric deployment. According to this research analyzes, the total number of intermediate hops to reach information from source to sink has been vastly varied between two different conditional deployments. And the distant based geometric routing energy consumption is also varied under two different geometric deployment strategies. As per research analysis the communication consumes more energy than sensing and processing of sensor node. So, if the number hops increases between source to sink then the energy consumption to transmit and receive the information is also getting increases.

ASSESSMENT OF GREENHOUSE GASES AND PARAMETERS USING WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK

The association of both static and mobile networks is accomplished with the aid of mobile robots, which journey around the environment and set up motes that act as beacons. Landslide discovery employs scattered sensor system for predicting the happening of the landslides. The deliberation of predicting landslides by means of sensor networks arose out of a necessity to mitigate the stain caused by landslides to human lives and to the railway networks. A blend of techniques from earth sciences, signal processing, scattered systems and fault-tolerance is used. One solitary peculiarity of these systems is that it combines several distributed systems techniques to contract with the complexities of a distributed sensor network environment where connectivity is disadvantaged and power budgets are very constrained, while fulfilling real-world requirements of protection.

In early 1970s, the Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) was called packet radio network, which was sponsored by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). They had a project named packet radio having several wireless terminals that could communication with each other on battlefields. “It is interesting to note that these early packet radio systems predict the Internet and indeed were part of the motivation of the original Internet Protocol suite”. The whole life cycle of Ad hoc networks could be categorized into the first, second, and the third generation Ad hoc networks systems. Present Ad hoc networks systems are considered the third generation. The first generation goes back to 1972. At the time, they were called PRNET (Packet Radio Networks). In conjunction with ALOHA (Arial Locations of Hazardous Atmospheres) and CSMA (Carrier Sense Medium Access), approaches for medium access control and a kind of distance-vector routing PRNET were used on a trial basis to provide different networking capabilities in a combat environment.
