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 ...
Energy load balancing for fixed clustering in wireless sensor networks
Clustering can be used as an effective technique to achieve both energy load balancing and an extended lifetime for a wireless sensor network (WSN). This paper presents a novel approach that first creates energy balanced ...
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 ...
On the analysis of expected distance between sensor nodes and the base station in randomly deployed WSNs
(Springer Verlag, 2014)
In this study, we focus on the analytical derivation of the expected distance between all sensor nodes and the base station (i.e., E[dtoBS]) in a randomly deployed WSN. Although similar derivations appear in the related ...
Average distance estimation in randomly deployed wireless sensor networks (WSNs): an analytical study
(Inderscience Enterprises, 2019)
A wireless sensor network (WSN) is an energy-scarce network in which the energy is primarily dissipated by the nodes during data transmission to the base station (BS). The location of the BS dramatically affects the energy ...
