This paper reviews recent experiments with networks for environmental and agricultural applications; it also provides a critical review of recent research and considers future challenges and opportunities. ABSTRACT | This paper is concerned with the application of wireless sensor network (WSN) technology to long-duration and large-scale environmental(More)
We describe the design and implementation of a public-key platform, secFleck, based on a commodity Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip that extends the capability of a standard node. Unlike previous software public-key implementations this approach provides E-Commerce grade security; is computationally fast, energy efficient; and has low financial cost — all(More)
The ubiquity of mobile devices has brought forth the concept of participatory sensing, whereby ordinary citizens can now contribute and share information from the urban environment. However, such applications introduce a key research challenge: preserving the privacy of the individuals contributing data. In this paper, we study two different privacy(More)
Participatory sensing is a revolutionary new paradigm in which volunteers collect and share information from their local environment using mobile phones. The inherent openness of this platform makes it easy to contribute corrupted data. This paper proposes a novel reputation system that employs the Gompertz function for computing device reputation score as(More)
The effects of 24-epibrassinolide (EBR) spray application on gas-exchange, chlorophyll fluorescence characteristics, Rubisco activity, and carbohydrate metabolism were investigated in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L. cv. Jinchun No. 3) plants grown in a greenhouse. EBR significantly increased the light-saturated net CO(2) assimilation rate (A(sat)) from 3 h to(More)
A noise map facilitates monitoring of environmental noise pollution in urban areas. It can raise citizen awareness of noise pollution levels, and aid in the development of mitigation strategies to cope with the adverse effects. However, state-of-the-art techniques for rendering noise maps in urban areas are expensive and rarely updated (months or even(More)
In this paper, we introduce the first fully implemented two-way authen-tication security scheme for the Internet of Things (IoT) based on existing Internet standards, specifically the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol. By relying on an established standard, existing implementations , engineering techniques and security infrastructure can be(More)
] is one such example. This application involves streaming sensed data such as pressure, water flow rate, and salinity periodically from many scattered sensors to the sink node which in turn relays them via an IP network to a remote site for archiving, processing, and presentation. While latency is not a primary concern in this class of application (the(More)
We describe the design, development and learnings from the first phase of a rainforest ecological sensor network at Springbrook - part of a World Heritage precinct in South East Queensland. This first phase is part of a major initiative to develop the capability to provide reliable, long-term monitoring of rainforest ecosystems. We focus in particular on(More)
Usecases for wireless sensor networks, such as building automation or patient care, often collect and transmit sensitive information. Yet, many deployments currently do not protect this data through suitable security schemes. We propose an end-to-end security scheme build upon existing internet standards, specifically the Datagram Transport Layer Security(More)
