The performance of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is a domain that attracts a lot of attention. Congestion occurrence is a fact that negatively affects the performance of WSNs. In this work, we propose and design two specific congestion control and avoidance algorithms for WSNs that contribute to the confrontation of this problem. The two algorithms are the Hierarchical Tree Alternative Path Algorithm (HTAP) and the Dynamic Alternative Path Selection (DAlPaS) algorithm. The operation of both…

Intelligently using data from external WSNs
The feasibility of an approach that intelligently utilizes information produced by other WSNs that may or not belong to the same administrative domain is shown, and a specific use-case is considered, where the operation of a WSN measuring relative humidity is optimized using the data obtained from a W SN measuring temperature.
A Centralized Mechanism to Make Predictions Based on Data from Multiple WSNs
