-A mobile ad hoc network is an autonomous system of infrastructureless, multihop wireless mobile nodes. Reactive routing protocols perform well in such an environment due to their ability to cope quickly against topological changes. In this paper, we propose a new routing protocol called Caching and Multipath (CHAMP) Routing Protocol. CHAMP uses cooperative(More)
In underwater sensor networks (UWSNs), determining the location of every sensor is important and the process of estimating the location of each node in a sensor network is known as localization. While various localization algorithms have been proposed for terrestrial sensor networks, there are relatively few localization schemes for UWSNs. The(More)
Energy consumption is a perennial issue in the design of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) which typically rely on portable sources like batteries for power. Recent advances in ambient energy harvesting technology have made it a potential and promising alternative source of energy for powering WSNs. By using energy harvesters with supercapacitors, WSNs are(More)
This paper presents a mobility-based d-hop clustering algorithm (MobDHop), which forms variable-diameter clusters based on node mobility pattern in MANETs. We introduce a new metric to measure the variation of distance between nodes over time in order to estimate the relative mobility of two nodes. We also estimate the stability of clusters based on(More)
In scenarios where wireless ad hoc networks are deployed, sometimes it would be desirable that ad hoc nodes can communicate with servers in wired networks to upload or download data. In these cases TCP connections will span both wireless ad hoc and wired domains. However, TCP often faces severe unfairness in this type of connection scenario, which forces(More)
In recent years, wireless networks have become increasingly common and an increasing number of devices are communicating with each other over lossy links. Unfortunately, TCP performs poorly over lossy links as it is unable to differentiate the loss due to packet corruption from that due to congestion. In this paper, we present an extension to TCP which(More)
Localization schemes using hop-counts to reference nodes of known positions have been proposed to localize nodes in a sensor network. However, these schemes usually work well only when the networks have uniform and dense node distribution. A novel density-aware hop-count localization (DHL) algorithm is described to improve the accuracy of location(More)
Energy consumption is an important issue in the design of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) which typically rely on portable energy sources like batteries for power. Recent advances in ambient energy harvesting technologies have made it possible for sensor nodes to be powered by ambient energy entirely without the use of batteries. However, since the energy(More)

During times of calamity, such as an earthquake or tsunami, rescue and recovery efforts are usually hampered by communications failure as the incumbent communications infrastructure has most likely been damaged or destroyed during the disaster. An ad-hoc communications infrastructure, with support for multimedia traffic such as Voice over IP and video-(More)
