Smart home wireless mesh networks (SH-WMNs) have emerged to become one of the promising applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In SH-WMNs, connected dominating set (CDS) is one of candidates for clustering formation or virtual backbone construction. During the CDS construction, however, the link that has enough bandwidth to support more(More)
Connected dominating set (CDS) has been used widely in mobile ad hoc networks by numerous routing, broadcast, and time synchronization protocols. Although computing minimum CDS is known to be NP-hard, many distributed protocols have been proposed to construct a small CDS. However, these protocols are either too complicated, need non-local information, are(More)
In wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and wireless personal area networks (WPANs), IEEE802.15.4 [1] has emerged to be one of promising radio specifications at the view of physical layer and medium access control. Without any help of infrastructure, the low rate and low power communication should be guaranteed. To utilize the collected information under WSNs,(More)
Wireless mesh networks have emerged to be one of the promising applications of ad hoc networks. The idea of installing multiple radio interfaces at each mesh router allows a mesh network to better utilize the available wireless bandwidth, but at the same time complicates the issue of route selection. In this paper, we propose a novel metric that measures(More)
In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs), IEEE802.15.4 [1] has emerged as one of the most promising radio specifications for physical layer and medium access control, guaranteeing low rate and low power communication independent of infrastructure. To utilize the collected information under WSNs, the data typically pass(More)
