Distributed simulation techniques are commonly used to improve the speed and scalability of wireless sensor network simulators. However, accurate simulations of dynamic interactions of sensor network applications incur large synchronization overheads and severely limit the performance of existing distributed simulators. In this paper, we present two novel(More)
Sensor network simulators are important tools for the design, implementation and evaluation of wireless sensor networks. Due to the large computational requirements necessary for simulating wireless sensor networks with high fidelity, many wireless sensor network simulators, especially the cycle accurate ones, employ distributed simulation techniques to(More)
Wireless sensor nodes are increasingly being tasked with computation and communication intensive functions while still subject to constraints related to energy availability. On these embedded platforms, once all low power design techniques have been explored, duty-cycling the various subsystems remains the primary option to meet the energy and power(More)
It is now well expected that low-power sensor networks will soon be deployed for a wide variety of applications. These networks could potentially have millions of nodes spread in complex indoor/outdoor environments. One of the major deployment challenges under such diverse communication environments is providing reliable communication links to those low(More)
Many existing PC power saving features are under utilized since they may interfere with users’ normal operations of computers. By taking into consideration the locations of computer users, locationaware PC power management techniques can overcome such limitations and offer both energy savings and non-intrusiveness. However, existing locationaware power(More)
