A large class of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) applications involve a set of isolated urban areas (e.g., urban parks or building blocks) covered by sensor nodes (SNs) monitoring environmental parameters. Mobile sinks (MSs) mounted upon urban vehicles with fixed trajectories (e.g., buses) provide the ideal infrastructure to effectively retrieve sensory data(More)
A key feature of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is the collaborative processing, where the correlation existing over the local data of sensor nodes (SNs) is exploited so that the total data volume can be reduced (data aggregation). The use of Mobile Agents (MAs), i.e., software entities able of migrating among nodes and resuming execution naturally, fits(More)
Clustering for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) offers a kind of hierarchical organization by partitioning mobile hosts into disjoint groups of hosts (clusters). However, the problem of changing topology is recurring and the main challenge in this technique is to build stable clusters despite the host mobility. In this paper, we present a novel clustering(More)
In wireless sensor networks (WSNs), a lot of sensory traffic with redundancy is produced due to massive node density and their diverse placement. This causes the decline of scarce network resources such as bandwidth and energy, thus decreasing the lifetime of sensor network. Recently, the mobile agent (MA) paradigm has been proposed as a solution to(More)
In this article, we consider the problem of calculating an appropriate number of near-optimal (subject to a certain routing objective) routes for mobile agents (MAs) that incrementally fuse the data as they visit the nodes in a distributed sensor network. We propose an improved heuristic algorithm which computes an approximate solution to the problem by(More)
In this paper we address the bi-criteria shortest path problem in a network with time-dependent cost functions, a travel time constraint and zero waiting time at nodes. We propose a discrete time forward label setting algorithm which outperforms other approaches in the literature. We also propose a second, more general, forward label setting algorithm that(More)
Vehicle (bike or car) sharing represents an emerging transportation scheme which may comprise an important link in the green mobility chain of smart city environments. This chapter offers a comprehensive review of algorithmic approaches for the design and management of vehicle sharing systems. Our focus is on one‐way vehicle sharing systems (wherein(More)
