Data gathering is one of the most important services provided by wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Since the predominant traffic pattern in data gathering services is many-to-one communication, it is critical to understand the limitations of many-to-one information flows and devise efficient data aggregation protocols to support prolonged operations in WSNs.(More)
In wireless systems, accurate location estimation facilitates a variety of applications such as emergency localization, intelligent transport systems, inventory tracking, intruder detection , tracking of fire-fighters and miners, and home automation [1, 2]. In addition, location information can help optimize resource allocation and improve cooperation in(More)
The predominate traffic patterns in a wireless sensor network are many-to-one and one-to-many communication. Hence, the performance of wireless sensor networks is characterized by the rate at which data can be disseminated from or aggregated to a data sink. In this paper, we consider the data aggregation problem. We demonstrate that a data aggregation rate(More)

Energy is a primary resource in multi-hop wireless networks with small devices powered by battery. Minimizing energy consumption without affecting communication activities is crucial to prolong the lifetime and improve robustness of the network. One effective way to reduce the energy consumption of wireless devices, termed power management, is to put the(More)
Initially popularized by Amazon.com, recommendation technologies have become widespread over the past several years, both in the industry and academia. The traditional two-dimensional approach to recommender systems, involving the dimensions of Users and Items, has been subsequently extended to the multidimensional approach supporting additional contextual(More)
