In this paper, we present a distributed infrastructure based on wireless sensors network and Grid computing technology for air pollution monitoring and mining, which aims to develop low-cost and ubiquitous sensor networks to collect real-time, large scale and comprehensive environmental data from road traffic emissions for air pollution monitoring in urban(More)
In wireless sensor networks, it is already noted that nearby sensor nodes monitoring an environmental feature typically register similar values. This kind of data redundancy due to the spatial correlation between sensor observations inspires the research of in-network data aggregation. In this paper, an -local spatial clustering algorithm for sensor(More)
The ever-increasing power of computing infrastructure such as processing, storage and network bandwidth continues to enable new models of data management and analysis. The Mobile Environmental Sensor System Across Grid Environments (MESSAGE) set out to make use of such advances, combined with e-Science techniques, to support the capture, processing,(More)
Connected dominating sets (CDS) can be used to form virtual backbones for the hierarchical routing to save energy in the wireless sensor networks. The existing algorithms for CDS can only be used to the topologies that have larger vertex connective degrees. Besides, most of them do not consider the energy characteristics of the virtual backbones constructed(More)
The nodes near sink in wireless sensor networks are featured with heavy transmission loads, so these performance bottleneck nodes are prone to running out of energy early with shortened network lifetime. Routing tactic plays important role on transmission performance and energy consumption of network. In this paper, we enumerate typical source routing(More)
