Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are an enabling technology of context-aware systems. The Internet of Things (IoT), which has attracted much attention in recent years, is an emerging paradigm where everyday objects and spaces are made context-aware and interconnected through heterogeneous networks on a global scale. However, the IoT system can suffer from(More)
Conventional wireless home automation networks (WHANs) incorporate embedded wireless sensors and actuators that monitors and control home living environment. WHAN's primary goal is to maintain user comfort and efficient home management. Conventional WHAN lacks “intelligence” in terms of managing compound human comfort, and it deals with multitude of human(More)
Brokers are critical elements for many publish and subscribe (pub/sub) systems. They are dedicated devices with large computation and storage capacities, but they could suffer from scalability problems when comes to actual large-scale implementations in wireless sensor networks. Inspired by the recent virtual MIMO concept for wireless sensor networks, this(More)
With the significant growing of multi-service traffic demands in Next Generation Networks (NGNs), there is a need for reducing the overall energy consumption due to the environmental impact and potential economic benefits. While most existing green networking approaches take no or less consideration on the service resilience aspect. There is an inherent(More)
The focus of this work lies on analysing Passive House (PH) requirement from human comfort perspective. The investigation will lead into plans for utilising Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) as an enabling tool in human comfort solution. WSNs are used as cooperative smart objects that closely monitor living space's environmental comfort (thermal comfort,(More)
Conventional wireless home automation networks (WHANs) incorporate embedded wireless sensors and actuators that monitors and control home living environment. WHANs primary goal is to maintain user comfort and efficient home management. Conventional WHAN lacks higher ”intelligence” in term of managing compound human comfort where as it deals with multitude(More)
Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) techniques can be used to increase the data rate for a given bit error rate (BER) and transmission power. Due to the small form factor, energy and processing constraints of wireless sensor nodes, a cooperative Virtual MIMO as opposed to True MIMO system architecture is considered more feasible for wireless sensor network(More)
This paper proposes a distributed wireless sensor network (WSN) data stream clustering algorithm to minimize sensor nodes energy consumption and consequently extend the network lifetime. The paper follows the strategy of trading-off communication for computation through distributed clustering and successive transmission of local clusters. We present an(More)
The adoption of embedded systems, mobile devices and other smart devices keeps rising globally, and the scope of their involvement broadens, for instance, in smart city-like scenarios. In light of this, a pressing need emerges to tame such complexity and reuse as much tooling as possible without resorting to vertical ad hoc solutions, while at the same time(More)
