Mobile sensors cover more area over a period of time than the same number of stationary sensors. However, the quality of coverage achieved by mobile sensors depends on the velocity, mobility pattern, number of mobile sensors deployed and the dynamics of the phenomenon being sensed. The gains attained by mobile sensors over static sensors and the optimal(More)
— In this paper we develop a model for random walk search mechanism in unstructured P2P networks. Using the model we obtain analytical expressions for the performance metrics of random walk search in terms of the popularity of the resource being searched for and the parameters of random walk. We propose an equation based adaptive search mechanism that uses(More)
— The wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are emerging as a popular means of providing connectivity to communities in both affluent and poor parts of the world. The presence of backbone mesh routers and the use of multiple channels and interfaces allow mesh networks to have better capacity than infrastructure-less multihop ad hoc networks. In this paper we(More)
—Overheads incurred by routing protocols diminish the capacity available for relaying useful data over a mobile wireless ad hoc network. Discovering and understanding the lower bounds on the amount of protocol overhead incurred for routing data packets is important for development of efficient routing protocols, and for understanding the actual (effective)(More)
In this paper we focus on characterizing the average end-to-end delay and maximum achievable per-node throughput in random access multihop wireless ad hoc networks with stationary nodes. We present an analytical model that takes into account the number of nodes, the random packet arrival process, the extent of locality of traffic, and the back off and(More)
— In this paper, we study the problem of designing motion strategies for a team of mobile agents, required to fulfill request for on-site service in a given planar region. In our model, each service request is generated by a spatio-temporal stochastic process; once a service request has been generated, it remains active for a certain deterministic amount of(More)
In this paper we develop a model for random walk-based search mechanisms in unstructured P2P networks. This model is used to obtain analytical expressions for the performance metrics of random walk search in terms of the popularity of the resource being searched for and the random walk parameters. We propose an equation-based adaptive search mechanism that(More)
— Consider the following scenario: a spatio-temporal stochastic process generates service requests, localized at points in a bounded region on the plane; these service requests are fulfilled when one of a team of mobile agents visits the location of the request. For example, a service request may represent the detection of an event in a sensor network(More)
