—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 this(More)
Sink mobility has attracted much research interest in recent years because it can improve network performance such as energy efficiency and throughput. An energy-unconscious moving strategy is potentially harmful to the balance of the energy consumption among sensor nodes so as to aggravate the hotspot problem of sensor networks. In this paper, we propose(More)
Considering sensor nodes deployed densely and uniformly in the sensing field, we focus on a scenario that a mobile sink moving through the sensing field queries a specific area or a point of interest for data collection. A <i>Query</i> packet is injected by the mobile sink and routed to the specific area, then the corresponding <i>Response</i> packet is(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)
