Transmission control protocol (TCP) is the most popular transport layer protocol for the Internet. Due to various reasons, such as multipath routing, route fluttering, and retransmissions, packets belonging to the same flow may arrive out of order at a destination. Such packet reordering violates the design principles of some traffic control mechanisms in(More)
In energy-limited wireless sensor networks, network clustering and sensor scheduling are two efficient techniques for minimizing node energy consumption and maximizing network coverage lifetime. When integrating the two techniques, the challenges are how to select cluster heads and active nodes. In this paper, we propose a coverage-aware clustering(More)
Opportunistic transmission scheduling schemes improve system capacity by taking advantage of independent time varying channels in wireless networks. In the design of such scheduling schemes, the fairness criterion plays an important role in the tradeoff of total system capacity and the achievable throughput of individual users. To meet different fairness(More)
The latest video coding standard, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) can achieve up to 50% bit rate saving while maintain the same subjective quality compared to H.264/AVC. However, this great advance is obtained at the expense of significantly increased encoder complexity. In this paper, a two-step algorithm focusing on fast mode decision is proposed for(More)
The hardware capability and software functionality of sensor networks have continuously evolved. Apart from the merits brought by technological advances, this rapid upgrading pace poses great challenges to make heterogeneous sensor node platforms interoperate with each other. In this work, a service-oriented Application Programming Interface (API) is(More)
Transport Control Protocol (TCP), the mostly used transport protocol, performs well over wired networks. As much as wireless network is deployed, TCP should be modified to work for both wired and wireless networks. Since TCP is designed for congestion control in wired networks, it cannot clearly detect non-congestion related packet loss from wireless(More)
The objective of this paper is two-fold. First, we compare the performance, through computer simulations, of some solutions for TCP packet reordering in wireless networks. Second, we present an alternative method to improve the connection goodput in wireless networks through link-layer retransmissions and applying the solutions to TCP packet reordering.(More)
Accurate vehicular localization is important for various cooperative vehicle safety (CVS) applications such as collision avoidance, turning assistant, etc. In this paper, we propose a cooperative vehicular distance measurement technique based on the sharing of GPS pseudorange measurements and a weighted least squares method. The classic double difference(More)
