Prolonging the network lifetime depends on efficient management of sensing node energy resource. Energy consumption is therefore one of the most crucial design issues in WSN. Hierarchical routing protocols are best known in regard to energy efficiency. By using a clustering technique hierarchical routing protocols greatly minimize energy consumed in(More)
Many applications that use sensor data from a wireless sensor network (WSN) require corresponding node position information as well. Additionally, some routing protocols use position to determine viable routes. Several localization algorithms have been proposed which can be categorized as: range-based and range-free algorithms. In this paper, we propose a(More)
—The wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is a power constrained system, since nodes run on limited power batteries which shorten its lifespan.The main challenge facing us in the design and conception of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is to find the best way to extend their life span. The clustering algorithm is a key technique used to increase the scalability(More)
A clustering algorithm is a key technique used to increase the scalability and lifetime of the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In this paper, we propose and evaluate a distributed energy-efficient clustering algorithm for heterogeneous WSNs, which is called Position-Based Clustering (PBC). This protocol is an improvement of LEACH-E. In PBC, the(More)
Retrieving documents in response to the user's query is the most commonly text retrieval task. For our work, we have mainly focused on detecting the semantic similarity between documents in large documents collection and queries. In this paper, we investigated MapReduce as a specific framework for managing distributed processing in dataset pattern and(More)
