Existing approaches to diagnosing sensor networks are generally sink-based, which rely on actively pulling state information from all sensor nodes so as to conduct centralized analysis. However, the sink-based diagnosis tools incur huge communication overhead to the traffic sensitive sensor networks. Also, due to the unreliable wireless communications, sink(More)
Node misbehavior due to selfish or malicious intention could significantly degrade the performance of MANET because most existing routing protocols in MANET are aiming at finding most efficiency path. To deal with misbehavior in MANET, an incentive mechanism should be integrated into routing decision-making. In this paper firstly we review existing(More)
This paper mainly focuses on the integrated importance measure (IIM) of component states based on loss of system performance. To describe the impact of each component state, we first introduce the performance function of the multi-state system. Then, we present the definition of IIM of component states. We demonstrate its corresponding physical meaning, and(More)

In this study, we explore the possibility of locating remote objects via cameras together with built-in inertial sensors of off-the-shelf smartphones. Our solution, CamLoc, enables a user taking two photos of an object using a smartphone at a fixed location and immediately knowing the location of the object in global coordinates, thus facilitating myriad(More)
Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a dynamic wireless communication network. Because of the dynamic and infrastructureless characteristics, MANET is vulnerable in reliability. This paper presents a novel reliability analysis for MANET. The node mobility effect and the node reliability based on a real MANET platform are modeled and analyzed. An effective Monte(More)
MANET (Mobile ad hoc network) is vulnerable to security attack due to its characteristics such as open network environment, lack of centralized control, dynamic topology, and so on, while traditional security mechanisms cannot meet the security requirements of MANET due to the limited communication bandwidth, computation power, memory and battery capacity,(More)
Social media websites have become important information sharing platforms. The rapid development of social media platforms has led to increasingly large-scale social media data, which has shown remarkable societal and marketing values. There are needs to extract important events in live social media streams. However, microblogs event classification is(More)
