Increasing attention has recently been devoted to underwater sensor networks (UWSNs) because of their capabilities in the ocean monitoring and resource discovery. UWSNs are faced with different challenges, the most notable of which is perhaps how to efficiently deliver packets taking into account all of the constraints of the available acoustic(More)
The simulation of distributed systems that implement a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) imposes a set of requirements on their simulation models. These models must rep-licate the interactions that characterise the SOA operational paradigm and the role of the entities that support an SOA. When those interactions occur over Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs),(More)
Underwater Sensor Network (UWSN) is significantly different from terrestrial network in that acoustic signal is mainly used as the communication medium. The acoustic signal imposes high bit error rate, limited bandwidth and long propagation delay which, to some extent, influences the design of various services in UWSNs. MAC protocol, however, is one of the(More)
An Underwater Sensor Network (UWSN) has many unique features that makes it different from terrestrial network. This includes lower bandwidth, longer propagation delay, dynamic topology, high error rate, and energy constraint. To overcome the limitations of such an environment, opportunistic routing has recently attracted much attention due to its ability to(More)
This research focuses on developing a positioning algorithm for Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) based indoor positioning systems. The proposed Two Receiver Indoor Positioning (TRIP) algorithm has the potential to overcome the light beam overlapping problem and locate the position of an object in an indoor environment precisely. The current research(More)
The IEEE Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) family of standards is the leading worldwide standardisation effort in terms of Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC). WAVE aims at defining a common set of requirements and functionalities, in order to enable intercommunication and interoperability between nodes in a Vehicular Ad hoc Network(More)
Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSN) utilise acoustic waves with comparatively lower loss and longer range in underwater environment than electromagnetic waves. However, energy remains a challenging issue in addition to long latency, high bit error rate, and limited bandwidth. Thus, collision and retransmission should be efficiently handled at MAC layer in(More)
