Mobile enable Wireless Sensor Network (mWSN) has been proposed to realize large-scale information gathering via networking wireless sensors and mobile sinks. Some fundamental design parameters in mWSN have been investigated in this article, such as cluster size, sink velocity, transmission range, and packet length. Our contributions include: 1) We propose(More)
Recognizing the transportation modes of people’s daily living is an important research issue in the pervasive computing. Prior research in this field mainly uses Global Positioning System (GPS), Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) or their combination with accelerometer to recognize transportation modes, such as walking, driving, etc. In(More)
The resources especially energy in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are quite limited. Since sensor nodes are usually much dense, data sampled by sensor nodes have much redundancy, data aggregation becomes an effective method to eliminate redundancy, minimize the number of transmission, and then to save energy. Many applications can be deployed in WSNs and(More)
Parallel implementations of Turbo decoding has been studied extensively. Traditionally, the number of parallel sub-decoders is limited to maintain acceptable code block error rate performance loss caused by the edge effect of code block division. In addition, the sub-decoders require synchronization to exchange information in the iterative process. In this(More)
Mobility has been incorporated into wireless sensor networks in recent years in order to improve energy efficiency and network coverage. In particular, at the cost of increased message delivery delay, the energy conservation can be achieved by limiting the hop count between the communicating sensor-sink pair. In this paper we allow multihop routing between(More)
Recently, the content-based publish/subscribe (pub/sub) paradigm has been gaining popularity in opportunistic mobile networks (OppNets) for its flexibility and adaptability. Since nodes in OppNets are controlled by humans, they often behave selfishly. Therefore, stimulating nodes in selfish OppNets to collect, store, and share contents efficiently is one of(More)
—In this paper, we exploit the geographic oppor-tunistic routing (GOR) for QoS provisioning with both end-to-end reliability and delay constraints in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Recent work exploits multipath routing to guarantee both reliability and delay QoS constraints in WSNs. However, the multipath routing approach suffers from a significant(More)
