Interchannel interference (ICI) is the key problem in wireless MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) transmission. Numerous ICI reduction algorithms are reported in literature. It is common to these ICI reduction algorithms that they require considerable signal processing power. In this paper, a new approach is presented which avoids ICI and, thus, results(More)
In this paper, we propose a power-efficient and QoS (Quality of Service)-aware MAC (Medium Access Control) scheduling algorithm for Bluetooth scatternet. If the inter-piconet scheduler in a bridge node between piconets operates simply by the Round Robin (RR) policy, a number of time slots may be wasted due to the guard time for piconet switching and the(More)
In this paper, we propose a QoS guaranteed and energy-efficient transmission scheme for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs), which operate in conjunction with contention-based access protocols, such as CSMA/CA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Avoidance). Energy consumption is one of the most important issues in WPAN systems, because WPAN devices(More)
A typical ship area network (SAN) is mainly based on wired networks such as dedicated connections, instrument networks, and shipboard control networks. For a machine-to-machine (M2M) high-speed data transmission with guaranteed QoS and energy efficiency, we consider high-rate wireless personal area network (HR-WPAN) application to ship area network. It is(More)
The expansion of embedded ICT infrastructure has resulted in the deployment of a wide range of embedded systems in our environment which indicate the need for reusable, manageable and flexible Wireless Sensor Network. Integration of WSN infrastructure with Cloud simplifies the system operation and maintenance as well as the cost and capable of providing(More)
A significant challenge when implementing time synchronization protocols is minimizing timestamp uncertainties. The major problem of time synchronization is not only that this packet delay exists, but also being able to predict the time spent on each can be difficult. This paper aims to reduce these uncertainties by estimating them in the transmitter and(More)
