A Joint Data Compression and Encryption Approach for Wireless Energy Auditing Networks
Rui Tan, Sheng-Yuan Chiu, Hoang Hai Nguyen, David K. Y. Yau, Deokwoo Jung
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/3027489

Fine-grained real-time metering is a fundamental service of wireless energy auditing networks, where metering data is transmitted from embedded wireless power meters to gateways for centralized processing, storage, and forwarding. Due to limited...

Improving Performance of Synchronous Transmission-Based Protocols Using Capture Effect over Multichannels
Mobashir Mohammad, Manjunath Doddavenkatappa, Mun Choon Chan
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/3043790

Synchronous transmission has been exploited recently for accelerating fundamental operations of wireless sensor networks like data dissemination, data collection, and network-wide agreement by an order of magnitude. Although these protocols (e.g.,...

Approximate Holistic Aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks
Ji Li, Siyao Cheng, Zhipeng Cai, Jiguo Yu, Chaokun Wang, Yingshu Li
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/3027488

Holistic aggregations are popular queries for users to obtain detailed summary information from Wireless Sensor Networks. An aggregation operation is holistic if there is no constant bound on the size of the storage needed to describe a...

IONavi: An Indoor-Outdoor Navigation Service via Mobile Crowdsensing
Xiaoqiang Teng, Deke Guo, Yulan Guo, Xiaolei Zhou, Zeliu Ding, Zhong Liu
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/3043948

The proliferation of mobile computing has prompted navigation to be one of the most attractive and promising applications. Conventional designs of navigation systems mainly focus on either indoor or outdoor navigation. However, people have a...

Intelligent Self-Adaptation Data Behavior Control Inspired by Speech Acts
Bin He, Gang Li
Article No.: 13
DOI: 10.1145/3051125

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are a promising technology for collecting information by utilizing various types of small-sized sensors. Implementing efficient data acquisition and transmission is important for real-time monitoring and data...

Zhicheng Yang, Parth H. Pathak, Yunze Zeng, Xixi Liran, Prasant Mohapatra
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/3051124

Continuous monitoring of human’s breathing and heart rates is useful in maintaining better health and early detection of many health issues. Designing a technique that can enable contactless and ubiquitous vital sign monitoring is a...

SEMON: Sensorless Event Monitoring in Self-Powered Wireless Nanosensor Networks
Eisa Zarepour, Mahbub Hassan, Chun Tung Chou, Adesoji A. Adesina
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/3064838

A conventional wireless sensor network node consists of a number of components: microprocessor, memory, sensor, and radio. Advances in nanotechnology have enabled the miniaturization of these components, thus enabling wireless nanoscale sensor...

Realistic and Repeatable Emulation of Energy Harvesting Environments
Josiah Hester, Lanny Sitanayah, Timothy Scott, Jacob Sorber
Article No.: 16
DOI: 10.1145/3064839

Harvesting energy from the environment makes it possible to deploy tiny sensors for long periods of time, with little or no required maintenance; however, this free energy makes testing and experimentation difficult. Environmental energy sources...
