This paper presents the design, experiment test and performance evaluation of FAST, a fast tag identification protocol in RFID systems. FAST includes a collision tolerant mechanism (CTM) that can identify tags in collision slots correctly. Each tag sends a randomly selected signature in its selected slot. When multiple tags select the same slot and a(More)
Hidden terminals are typical interference sources that can significantly reduce the throughput of a wireless network if it adopts the CSMA/CA MAC protocol. The RTS/CTS mechanism is a well-known solution to this hidden terminal problem. However, it only works well under the assumption that all hidden terminals can decode the CTS packets correctly. In the(More)
Wireless networks are propelled to improve the network throughput effectively to face the challenge of sustaining the rapid growth of data traffic and the high density of wireless nodes. Exposed terminals are a main source in wireless networks that degrades the network throughput performance through excessively avoiding interferences and forbidding(More)
This paper represents the design of Interference Resistant Multiple Access (IRMA), a novel cross layer protocol that can combat exposed terminals and exploit the concurrent transmissions in wireless networks, both helping in achieving higher throughput compared to the 802.11 standard and other recent protocols. By observing that nodes in current protocols(More)
Energy efficiency is a critical issue of wireless devices. As the packets are broadcast to the devices in the wireless transmission media, all active neighboring devices have to spend their energy receiving the packets though the packets are not addressed to them, which is called as the <italic>packet overhearing problem</italic>. The real-world traffic(More)
Interference management through power control in wireless ad hoc networks has both the hidden terminal problem which induces collisions, and the exposed terminal problem which prohibits concurrent transmissions. Both problems are caused by the varied interference range induced by the adjusted transmission power. Through observing that the nodes adopt the(More)
This paper represents the design, feasibility evaluation and performance validation of concurrency-based coordination mechanism (CCM), a novel cross-layer protocol that can coordinate among nodes effectively to avoid data packet interference in wireless local area networks (WLANs), achieving higher throughput compared to 802.11 standard and other(More)
A reliable and energy-efficient communication infrastructure plays an important role in the success of data collection, transmission and control in smart grid (SG) networks. In order to satisfy the coverage and cost minimization requirements, in this paper, we introduce cognitive radio (CR) into a residential SG network in which the communication load and(More)
A perfect bidirectional communication network is a common assumption in smart grids. However, it is unrealistic, especially in the neighborhood area network of microgrids. Due to the channel fading, large volumes of transmission data, and considerable communication cost, the imperfect communications affect the system performance directly. In this paper, we(More)
