—Energy efficiency is a key requirement for the Internet of Things, as many sensors are expected to be completely stand-alone and able to run for years between battery replacements. Data compression aims at saving some energy by reducing the volume of data sent over the network, but also affects the quality of the received information. In this work, we(More)
Jamming may be a serious issue in Internet of Things networks with battery-powered nodes, as an attacker can not only disrupt packet delivery, but also reduce the lifetime of energy-constrained nodes. In this work, we consider a malicious attacker with the dual objective of preventing communication and depleting the battery of a targeted node. We model this(More)
—The Internet of Things paradigm envisages the presence of many battery-powered sensors and this entails the design of energy-aware protocols. Source coding techniques allow to save some energy by compressing the packets sent over the network, but at the cost of a poorer accuracy in the representation of the data. This paper addresses the problem of(More)
