The emergence of personal mobile device with low cost sensors, such as accelerometer and digital compass, has made dead-reckoning (DR) an attractive choice for indoor pedestrian tracking. In this paper, we propose a robust DR pedestrian tracking system on top of such commercially accessible sensor sets capable of DR. The proposed method exploits the fact(More)

Abstract— In this paper, we consider the medium access control (MAC) protocol design for random access cognitive radio networks (CRNs). A two-level opportunistic spectrum access strategy is proposed(More)
—This paper surveys recently proposed works on Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) in WSNs, and presents a comprehensive classification of various IDS approaches according to their employed detection techniques. The three main categories explored in this paper are anomaly detection, misuse detection, and specification-based detection protocols. We give a(More)
This paper presents a novel hierarchical information fusion algorithm to obtain human global displacement for different gait patterns, including walking, running, and hopping based on seven body-worn inertial and magnetic measurement units. In the first-level sensor fusion, the orientation for each segment is achieved by a complementary Kalman filter (CKF)(More)
We propose a novel routing asynchronous wakeup scheme - Adaptive Wakeup Schedule Function (AWSF), which adapts to deployment topography to support fast routing in sensor networks. Unlike most other wakeup schemes such as the random and cyclic designs, AWSF guarantees hard delay bounds, have better average delays and smaller delay variances, and eliminates(More)
Micro-sensor human motion capture has shown its potentials because of its ubiquity and low cost. One of the biggest challenges in micro-sensor motion estimation is the drift problem caused by integration of angular rates to obtain orientation. To reduce the drift, existing algorithms make use of gravity and earth magnetic filed measured by accelerometers(More)
