Many low-cost localization techniques have been proposed for wireless sensor networks. However, few consider the mobility of networked sensors. In this paper, we propose an effective and practical localization technique especially designed for mobile sensor networks called Speed and direction Prediction-based Localization. It uses a single mobile anchor(More)
There are numerous projects dealing with disaster management and emergency response that use wireless sensor networks technologies. Indeed, WSNs offer a good alternative compared to traditional ad hoc networks. Air pollution monitoring, forest fire detection, landslide detection, natural disaster prevention, industrial sense and control applications,(More)
Emergency response in disaster management using wireless sensor networks has recently become an interest of many researchers in the world. This interest comes from the growing number of disasters and crisis (natural or man-made) affecting millions of lives and the easy-use of new and cheap technologies. This paper details another application of WSN in the(More)
Besides revealing useful information, like gender, age, existing impairments, the gait of every person is acknowledged to be so distinctive to allow the personal identification and it is regarded as a valid biometric authentication, similarly to fingerprinting and face recognition. Although the first analyses on the gait were conducted in laboratories with(More)
In this paper, we propose two extensions of SDPL (Speed and Direction Prediction-based Localization) method. The first is called MA-SDPL (Multiple Anchors SDPL) which uses multiple mobile anchors instead of only one. Each anchor has its own trajectory and its own departure point. The goal is to ensure a total coverage of the sensor field and to multiply the(More)
