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. ...
Code design for the relay channel
The design of wireless communication networks is based on the premise that networks are collections of reliable point-to-point links between communicating nodes. Such a communication model, although simple, is inefficient because wireless propagation is not point-to-point in nature. It is more efficient for nodes to share their resources by cooperating ...
