SINR-based scheduling in multi-path multi-hop multi-radio multi-channel mmWave WPANs

Millimeter wave (mmWave) communications is a prospective candidate technology for multi-gigabit rates multimedia applications. To combat the severe propagation attenuation of mmWave, the high gain directional antenna is commonly employed at the nodes. Moreover, exploiting multiple radios over multiple channels is also a promising technology to improve the throughput and delay...

Data quality analysis and cleaning strategy for wireless sensor networks

The quality of data in wireless sensor networks has a significant impact on decision support, and data cleaning is an effective way to improve data quality. However, if the data cleaning strategies are not correctly designed, it might result in an unsatisfactory cleaning effect with increased system cleaning costs. Initially, data quality evaluation indicators and their...

Spectral partitioning and fuzzy C-means based clustering algorithm for big data wireless sensor networks

In wireless sensor networks, sensor nodes are usually powered by battery and thus have very limited energy. Saving energy is an important goal in designing a WSN. It is known that clustering is an effective method to prolong network lifetime. Due to the development of big data, there are more sensor nodes and data needed to process. So how to cluster sensor nodes cooperatively...

`Through-wall human being detection using UWB impulse radar

Ultra-wideband (UWB) impulse radar plays an important role in contactless vital sign (VS) detection. The VS can be extracted remotely by acquiring the oscillations in the human chest.
