—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)
Recommender Systems (RS) have been extensively utilized as a means of reducing the information overload and offering travel recommendations to tourists. The emerging mobile RSs are tailored to mobile device users and promise to substantially enrich tourist experiences, recommending rich multimedia content, context‐aware services, views/ratings of peer(More)
Mobile Agent (MA) technology has been recently proposed in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) literature to answer the scalability problem of client/server model in data fusion applications. In this paper, we describe the critical role MAs can play in the field of security and robustness of a WSN in addition to data fusion. The design objective of our Jamming(More)
—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(More)
Mobile sinks (MS) mounted upon urban vehicles with fixed trajectories (e.g. buses) provide the ideal infrastructure to effectively retrieve sensory data from isolated Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) fields. Existing approaches involve either single-hop transfer of data from sensors that lie within the MS's range or heavy involvement of network periphery nodes(More)
