Distributed Cooperative Communications in Wireless Networks
The primary challenge in communication over wireless networks, unlike wireline networks, is the existence of interference and channel variations (fading). Having more users at higher data rates means that current point-to-point networks will not scale. To engineer a scalable network, we introduce a new paradigm that exploits different network ...
Exploiting Predictable Observer Mobility for Power Efficient Sensor Network Communication
This thesis introduces techniques that exploit predictable mobility of the observer (data sink) to reduce communication range, thereby saving power in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The movement of public transport vehicles is predictable, and such vehicles can act as mobile observers in wide area WSNs for applications such as pollution monitoring. ...
