Designing Interactive Multiswimmer Exergames: A Case Study
Woohyeok Choi, Jeungmin Oh, Taiwoo Park, Seongjun Kang, Miri Moon, Uichin Lee, Inseok Hwang, Darren Edge, Junehwa Song
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/2888399

The unique aquatic nature of swimming makes it difficult to use social or technical strategies to mitigate the tediousness of monotonous exercises. In this study, we propose the use of a smartphone-based multiplayer exergame named MobyDick....

Carpooling Service for Large-Scale Taxicab Networks
Desheng Zhang, Tian He, Fan Zhang, Mingming Lu, Yunhuai Liu, Haengju Lee, Sang H. Son
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/2897517

Carpooling has long held the promise of reducing gas consumption by decreasing mileage to deliver coriders. Although ad hoc carpools already exist in the real world through private arrangements, little research on the topic has been done. In this...

Neighborhood View Consistency in Wireless Sensor Networks
Arshad Jhumka, Luca Mottola
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/2901296

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are characterized by localized interactions, that is, protocols are often based on message exchanges within a node’s direct radio range. We recognize that for these protocols to work effectively, nodes...

A Comparative Study of Recent Wireless Sensor Network Simulators
Ivan Minakov, Roberto Passerone, Alessandra Rizzardi, Sabrina Sicari
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/2903144

Over recent years, the continuous interest in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has led to the appearance of new modeling methods and simulation environments for WSN applications. A broad variety of different simulation tools have been...

Consensus-Aware Sociopsychological Trust Model for Wireless Sensor Networks
Heena Rathore, Venkataramana Badarla, Supratim Shit
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/2903721

Security plays a vital role in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) for providing reliability to the network. In WSN, where nodes, in addition to having their inbuilt capability of sensing, processing, and communicating data, also possess certain risks....

Connectivity-Based Space Filling Curve Construction Algorithms in High Genus 3D Surface WSNs
Chen Wang, Hongbo Jiang, Yan Dong
Article No.: 22
DOI: 10.1145/2907947

Many applications in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) require that sensor observations in a given monitoring area are aggregated in a serial fashion. This demands a routing path to be constructed traversing all sensors in that area, which is also...

Neighbour-Disjoint Multipath for Low-Power and Lossy Networks
A. K. M. Mahtab Hossain, Cormac J. Sreenan, Rodolfo De Paz Alberola
Article No.: 23
DOI: 10.1145/2914792

In this article, we describe a neighbour disjoint multipath (NDM) scheme that is shown to be more resilient amidst node or link failures compared to the two well-known node disjoint and edge disjoint multipath techniques. A centralised NDM was...

Energy Harvesting and Wireless Transfer in Sensor Network Applications: Concepts and Experiences
Naveed Anwar Bhatti, Muhammad Hamad Alizai, Affan A. Syed, Luca Mottola
Article No.: 24
DOI: 10.1145/2915918

Advances in micro-electronics and miniaturized mechanical systems are redefining the scope and extent of the energy constraints found in battery-operated wireless sensor networks (WSNs). On one hand, ambient energy harvesting may prolong...

Energy-Efficient Aquatic Environment Monitoring Using Smartphone-Based Robots
Yu Wang, Rui Tan, Guoliang Xing, Jianxun Wang, Xiaobo Tan, Xiaoming Liu
Article No.: 25
DOI: 10.1145/2932190

Monitoring aquatic environment is of great interest to the ecosystem, marine life, and human health. This article presents the design and implementation of Samba—an aquatic surveillance robot that integrates an off-the-shelf Android...
