A Social-based Strategy for Memory Management in Sensor Networks

  title={A Social-based Strategy for Memory Management in Sensor Networks},
  author={Basim Mahmood and Ronaldo Parente de Menezes},
The technological structure of today’s societies enables people to easily exchange and share their information. This structure contains many sophisticated technologies such as mobile wireless devices (e.g., smartphones and tablets). These devices are mainly used for connecting people with each other. As these devices grow in usability, many issues have become apparent such as memory management, security, and power consumption. In this paper, we propose a novel social-based…

The Role of Human Relations and Interactions in Designing Memory-Related Models for Sensor Networks
A metric for measuring the strength of a relation between two sensors is proposed and an approach for memory management in a sensor network is proposed based on two concepts: social capital in sociology and preferential return in human mobility.

This article investigates the security vulnerabilities that issued, scored, and ranked by MITRE organization and comes up with recommendations for software developers on the vulnerabilities that are not given enough attention by developers.


Estimating memory requirements in wireless sensor networks using social tie strengths
A novel metric for measuring a tie strength of a pair of nodes is proposed and the proposed metric in estimating memory requirements in wireless sensors networks is explored.
Measuring Social Capital in the Domain of Community Wireless Networks
The social network analysis approach is used to measure and analyze the social capital created in the domain of CWNs, focusing on its network dimension.
Social capital: the power of influencers in networks
This work proposes a framework to compute this network social value using the concept of social capital, namely the amount of bonding and bridging connections in the network, and establishes the fairness of the allocation using several axioms of fairness.
Friendship and mobility: user movement in location-based social networks
A model of human mobility that combines periodic short range movements with travel due to the social network structure is developed and it is shown that this model reliably predicts the locations and dynamics of future human movement and gives an order of magnitude better performance.
Finding influencers in networks using social capital
This work proposes a value-allocation model to compute the social capital and allocate the fair share of this capital to each individual involved in the collaboration and shows that the allocation satisfies several axioms of fairness and falls in the same class as the Myerson's allocation function.
The effect of recency to human mobility
This work proposes a model in which exploitation in human movement also considers recently-visited locations and not solely frequently-Visited locations, and test the hypothesis against different empirical data of human mobility and show that the proposed model replicates the characteristic patterns of the recency bias.
Mobility Models for Systems Evaluation
The definition of realistic mobility models is one of the most critical and, at the same time, difficult aspects of the simulation of applications and systems designed for mobile environments.
Capital and benefit in social networks
This paper introduces a particular form of social network which is called a friendship-event network, which describes two inter-related networks that describes events, event organizers and event participants.
Mobility models for ad hoc network simulation
A new methodology for simulating mobility which guarantees steady state for node movement distributions from the start of the simulation, and can be implemented in a manner transparent to the user.
Surveillance coverage of sensor networks under a random mobility strategy
Under a Brownian motion random mobility strategy for the sensor grid, the distribution of the time-until-detection of slowly moving (point) targets is studied under two and three dimensional environments.
