The benefits of soft sensor and multi-rate control for the implementation of wireless networked control systems
(Mdpi Ag, 2014-12-01)
Recent advances in wireless networking technology and the proliferation of industrial wireless sensors have led to an increasing interest in using wireless networks for closed loop control. The main advantages of Wireless ...
Localized ant colony of robots for redeployment in wireless sensor networks
(Old City PublishingPhiladelphia, 2014)
Sensor failures or oversupply in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), especially initial random deployment, create spare sensors (whose area is fully covered by other sensors) and sensing holes. We envision a team of robots ...
Average Error Probability in Wireless Sensor Networks With Imperfect Sensing and Communication for Different Decision Rules
(Ieee-inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2016-05-15)
This paper presents a framework to evaluate the probability that a decision error event occurs in wireless sensor networks, including sensing and communication errors. We consider a scenario where sensors need to identify ...
ZigBee Wireless Dynamic Sensor Networks: Feasibility Analysis and Implementation Guide
(Ieee-inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2016-06-01)
The wireless sensor network (WSN) technology has attracted increasing attention considering its potential in many application fields. In most studies on WSNs, the network is assumed to cover several static devices over a ...
Human-centric wireless sensor networks to improve information availability during urban search and rescue activities
When a natural disaster hits an urban area, the first 72 h after are the most critical. After that period the probability of finding survivors falls dramatically, therefore the search and rescue activities in that area must ...
