Balancing energy loads in wireless sensor networks through uniformly quantized energy levels-based clustering
Clustering is considered a common and an effective method to prolong the lifetime of a wireless sensor network. This paper provides a new insight into the cluster formation process based on uniformly quantizing the residual ...
An optimal network dimensioning and initial energy assignment minimizing the monetary cost of a heterogeneous WSN
In this paper, a novel method is proposed to dimension a randomly deployed heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) of minimum monetary cost satisfying minimum coverage and minimum lifetime requirements. We consider ...
Computer aided frequency planning for the radio and TV broadcasts
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1996-06)
The frequency planning of the VHF and UHF broadcasts in Turkey is described. This planning is done with the aid of computer databases and digital terrain map. The frequency offset is applied whenever applicable to increase ...
Performance analysis of turbo codes over Nakagami-m fading channels with impulsive noise
The statistical characteristics of impulsive noise differ greatly from those of Gaussian noise. Hence, the performance of conventional decoders, optimized for AWGN channels is not promising in non-Gaussian environments. ...
