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)
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)
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)
—Recent years have witnessed the development of wireless sensor networks and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, and IPv6-based solution for sensor networks has attracted more and more attention which can enable end-to-end IP communication via the Internet. As far as we know, we implemented the first prototype system to transmit IPv6 packets over(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)
—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)
Energy efficient multicast routing is one of the fundamental problems in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Previous work has shown that when the goal is to find multicast trees with minimum transmission cost, the problem becomes NP-complete. In this work, we present a heuristic distributed minimum transmission multicast routing protocol (MTMRP) for WSNs. By(More)
