This paper focuses on reducing the power consumption of wireless microsensor networks. Therefore, a communication protocol named LEACH (Low-Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy) is modified. We extend LEACH's stochastic cluster-head selection algorithm by a deterministic component. Depending on the network configuration an increase of network lifetime by(More)
Localization in wireless sensor networks gets more and more important, because many applications need to locate the source of incoming measurements as precise as possible. Weighted centroid localization (WCL) provides a fast and easy algorithm to locate devices in wireless sensor networks. The algorithm is derived from a centroid determination which(More)
For future application scenarios of resource constrained and low cost smart cooperating objects, miscellaneous technologies for wireless connectivity are existing or upcoming in the near future. But further cross domain middleware and dedicated communication protocols to provide syntactic and semantic interoperability and not only technical interoperability(More)
Location-awareness is highly relevant subject in ubiquitous computing, as many applications exploit location information to provide adequate services or adapt to a changing physical environment. While GPS provides reliable outdoor localization, indoor positioning systems present a bigger challenge. Many indoor localization systems have been proposed.(More)
Autonomous localization of nodes in wireless sensor networks is essential to minimize the complex self organization task consequently enhancing the overall network lifetime. Recently, precise indoor localization is impeded by multi path propagation of signals due to reflections at walls or objects. In this paper we partly overcome some of these problems by(More)
True single phase clock logic techniques, e.g. with alternating arranged N-and P-logic cells, yield easy to design circuits with standard cells and high speed potential. The disadvantages are a difficult clock tree design and high power consumption. To realize every logic function, dual rail or differential styles are chosen which increase clock load. This(More)

By the use of this architecture, a flexible, scalable programming of applications based on an adaptive middleware is possible. The middleware supports mechanisms for cooperative data mining, self-organization, networking, and energy optimization to(More)
What is the recommended diagnostic work-up of female genital anomalies according to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE)/European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) system? The ESHRE/ESGE consensus for the diagnosis of female genital anomalies is presented. Accurate diagnosis of congenital anomalies still remains a(More)
Web Service technologies are state of the art in current enterprise distributed applications. To integrate highly resource-constrained devices, such as sensor nodes, into enterprise applications via Web Services, gateways are commonly used. Our aim was to investigate the intermediate, homogeneous communication between enterprise applications and highly(More)
