REWIMO: A Real-Time and Reliable Low-Power Wireless Mobile Network
Behnam Dezfouli, Marjan Radi, Octav Chipara
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/3046677

Industrial applications and cyber-physical systems rely on real-time wireless networks to deliver data in a timely and reliable manner. However, existing solutions provide these guarantees only for stationary nodes. In this article, we present...

Reliability or Sustainability: Optimal Data Stream Estimation and Scheduling in Smart Water Networks
Sokratis Kartakis, Shusen Yang, Julie A. Mccann
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/3064840

As a typical cyber-physical system (CPS), smart water distribution networks require monitoring of underground water pipes with high sample rates for precise data analysis and water network control. Due to poor underground wireless channel quality...

High-Level Design of Wireless Sensor Networks for Performance Optimization Under Security Hazards
Pablo Peñil, Alvaro Díaz, Hector Posadas, Julio Medina, Pablo Sánchez
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/3078359

The increasing complexity of current wireless sensor networks requires efficient methodologies to fulfill the strict constraints typically imposed in terms of power consumption and system performance. Furthermore, security issues are also becoming...

Unsupervised Residential Power Usage Monitoring Using a Wireless Sensor Network
Rui Tan, Dennis E. Phillips, Mohammad-Mahdi Moazzami, Guoliang Xing, Jinzhu Chen
Article No.: 20
DOI: 10.1145/3078240

Appliance-level power usage monitoring may help conserve electricity in homes. Several existing systems achieve this goal by exploiting appliances’ power usage signatures identified in labor-intensive in situ training processes. Recent work...

Fuzzy Bin-Based Classification for Detecting Children’s Presence with 3D Depth Cameras
Hee Jung Yoon, Ho-Kyeong RA, Can Basaran, Sang Hyuk Son, Taejoon Park, Jeonggil Ko
Article No.: 21
DOI: 10.1145/3079764

With the advancement of technology in various domains, many efforts have been made to design advanced classification engines that aid the protection of civilians and their properties in different settings. In this work, we focus on a set of the...

Energy-Efficient Collection of Sparse Data in Wireless Sensor Networks Using Sparse Random Matrices
Xiaohan Yu, Seung Jun Baek
Article No.: 22
DOI: 10.1145/3085576

We consider the energy efficiency of collecting sparse data in wireless sensor networks using compressive sensing (CS). We use a sparse random matrix as the sensing matrix, which we call Sparse Random Sampling (SRS). In SRS, only a randomly...

Measurement Based As-You-Go Deployment of Two-Connected Wireless Relay Networks
Avishek Ghosh, Arpan Chattopadhyay, Anish Arora, Anurag Kumar
Article No.: 23
DOI: 10.1145/3085577

Motivated by the need for impromptu or as-you-go deployment of wireless sensor networks in some situations, we study the problem of optimal sequential deployment of wireless sensors and relays along a line (e.g., a forest trail) of unknown length....

Maximum Entropy-Based Auto Drift Correction Using High- and Low-Precision Sensors
Punit Rathore, Dheeraj Kumar, Sutharshan Rajasegarar, Marimuthu Palaniswami
Article No.: 24
DOI: 10.1145/3085579

With the advancement in the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, variety of sensors including inexpensive, low-precision sensors with sufficient computing and communication capabilities are increasingly deployed for monitoring large geographical...

QoS in Body Area Networks: A Survey
M. A. Razzaque, Muta Tah Hira, Mukta Dira
Article No.: 25
DOI: 10.1145/3085580

Body Area Networks (BANs) are becoming increasingly popular and have shown great potential in real-time monitoring of the human body. With the promise of being cost-effective and unobtrusive and facilitating continuous monitoring, BANs have...
