The wide utilization of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is obstructed by the severely limited energy constraints of the individual sensor nodes. This is the reason why a large part of the research in WSNs focuses on the development of energy efficient routing protocols. In this paper, a new protocol called Equalized Cluster Head Election Routing Protocol(More)
The power awareness issue is the primary concern within the domain of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Most power dissipation ocurrs during communication, thus routing protocols in WSNs mainly aim at power conservation. Moreover, a routing protocol should be scalable, so that its effectiveness does not degrade as the network size increases. In response to(More)
The introduction of multimedia capable sensors has posed new challeges for classic Wireless Sensor Networks that are henceforth required to provide both power and quality efficent routing. This paper proposes an innovative protocol for power and perceived QoS aware routing of multimedia content over Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks. The proposed scheme(More)
In this article a scheme for image transmission over Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) with an adaptive compression factor is introduced. The proposed control architecture affects the quality of the transmitted images according to: (a) the traffic load within the network and (b) the level of details contained in an image frame. Given an approximate(More)
Sensor networks are dense wireless networks consisting of a large number of small-sized, low-cost sensor nodes that are densely deployed either inside the phenomenon or very close to it. Sensor nodes' function is to collect, process, and disseminate critical data while their position need not be engineered or predetermined. This means that sensor network(More)
Modern scientific advances have enabled remarkable efficacy for photovoltaic systems with regard to the exploitation of solar energy, boosting them into having a rapidly growing position among the systems developed for the production of renewable energy. However, in many cases the design, analysis, and control of photovoltaic systems are tasks which are(More)
Congestion can degrade the performance of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) since it causes energy waste, throughput reduction and increased information loss. To prevent this situation several congestion avoidance mechanisms and schemes may be applied. The aim of this paper is to survey existing congestion avoidance mechanisms to classify them and to discuss(More)
This paper proposes the development of an advanced fuzzy logic controller which aims to perform intelligent automatic control of the yaw movement of wind turbines. The specific fuzzy controller takes into account both the wind velocity and the acceptable yaw error correlation in order to achieve maximum performance efficacy. In this way, the proposed yaw(More)
