Sensing for the system-wide diagnosis of dimensional faults in multi-fixture sheet metal assembly presents significant issues of complexity due to the number of levels of assembly and the number of possible faults at each level. The traditional allocation of sensing at a single measurement station is no longer sufficient to guarantee adequate fault(More)
Broadcasting is an ad hoc network critical function component, and, in many deployments, making it power efficient is extremely important. Current power adaptive approaches proposed for broadcasting can be grouped into (a) centralized or omniscient schemes, and (b) decentralized or localized schemes. Due to the absence of global information, localized(More)
A triangulation-based coverage scheme using mobile sensor nodes (MSNs) has several applications in localization, 3D imaging and coordinated search operation. In this work, we introduce an efficient failure-tolerant mobile traversal algorithm (FTMTA) that provides a triangulation-based coverage of a field. FTMTA employs <i>N</i> MSNs such that, upto <i>N</i>(More)
Social networking has emerged as a powerful paradigm that connects people of similar interests. It has shown to be effective in routing queries in referral systems and cellular networks, and also in the production of frequently asked questions (FAQ) repository. In this paper, we extend its applicability to dispatch applications as part of fulfilling problem(More)
Several variations of synchronous parallel simulated annealing (PSA) were applied to solve the static lightpath establishment wavelength selective cross-connect network operation problem for a WDM network. The goal was to find high-quality solutions to determine the efficiency of the dynamic routing and wavelength assignment algorithms. Multiple parallel(More)
— In a Triangulation-based coverage scheme, a group of three mobile sensor nodes (MSN) position themselves to form an equilateral triangle for a desired period of time. Such a scheme has several applications in localization, environmental monitoring and coordinated target tracking. In this work, we introduce an efficient mobile traversal algorithm (MTA)(More)
