IEEE 802.11p and 1609 standards are currently under development to support Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure communications in vehicular networks. For infrastructure-based vehicular relay networks, access probability is an important measure which indicates how well an arbitrary vehicle can access the infrastructure, i.e. a base station (BS).(More)
Infrastructure-based vehicular networks (consisting of a group of Base Stations (BSs) along the road) will be widely deployed to support Wireless Access in Vehicular Environment (WAVE) and a series of safety and non-safety related applications and services for vehicles on the road. As an important measure of user satisfaction level, uplink connectivity(More)
Compressive sensing (CS)-based data aggregation has become an increasingly important research topic for large-scale wireless sensor networks since conventional data aggregations are shown to be inefficient and unstable in handling huge data traffic. However, for CS-based techniques, the discrete cosine transform, which is the most widely adopted(More)
With the seamless coverage of wireless cellular networks in modern society, it is interesting to consider the shape of wireless cellular coverage. Is the shape a regular hexagon, an irregular polygon, or another complex geometrical shape? Based on fractal theory, the statistical characteristic of the wireless cellular coverage boundary is determined by the(More)
The estimation of fast-fading LTE downlink channels in high-speed applications of LTE advanced is investigated in this article. In order to adequately track the fast time-varying channel response, an adaptive channel estimation and interpolation algorithm is essential. In this article, the multi-path fast-fading channel is modelled as a tapped-delay,(More)
In this paper, we first challenge the accuracy of the so-called innovative assumption that is widely adopted in delay performance analysis of network-coding-based epidemic routing (NCER) in delay-tolerant networks (DTNs). We demonstrate that this optimistic assumption severely underestimates data delivery delay and solves this problem successfully by(More)
Coverage is an important problem in wireless networks. Together with the access probability, which measures how well an arbitrary user can access a wireless network, in particular VANET, they are often used as major indicators of the quality of the network. In this paper, we investigate the coverage and access probability of the vehicular networks with(More)
The random distribution of sensors and the irregularity of routing paths lead to unordered sensory data which are difficult to deal with in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). However, for simplicity, most existing researches ignore those characteristics in the designs of Compressive Sensing based Data Aggregation Schemes (CSDAS). Since conventional(More)
To satisfy the requirement of high wireless transmission rate from user terminals, the multi-cell cooperative communication is an important solution for cellular networks. The selection of cooperative cells is usually depended on every wireless single cellular coverage boundary in cellular networks. In this paper, we analyze the characteristics of wireless(More)
As one of the most popular social media platforms today, Twitter provides people with an effective way to communicate and interact with each other. Through these interactions, influence among users gradually emerges and changes people's opinions. Although previous work has studied interpersonal influence as the probability of activating others during(More)
