Impact of Scale-free Topologies on Gossiping in Ad Hoc Networks

Benoit Garbinato; Denis Rochat; Marco Tomassini Sixth IEEE International Symposium on Network Computing and Applications (NCA 2007), 2007

We show that scale-free topologies have a positive impact on the performance of gossiping algorithms in peer-to-peer overlay networks. This result is important in the context of ad hoc networks, where each node participates in controlling the network topology. Our study shows that, when combined with such topologies, typical gossiping algorithms tend to require fewer messages and experience smaller latency ...

Gregory J. Brault; Christopher J. Augeri; Barry E. Mullins; Rusty O. Baldwin; Christopher B. Mayer Sixth IEEE International Symposium on Network Computing and Applications (NCA 2007), 2007

A skip graph is a resilient application-layer routing structure that supports range queries of distributed k-dimensional data. By sorting deterministic keys into groups based on locally computed random membership vectors, nodes in a standard skip graph can optimize range query performance in mobile networks such as unmanned aerial vehicle swarms. We propose a skip graph extension that inverts the key ...

The residual generated from a fully-decoupled parity equation is sensitive to a special sensor fault and decoupled from all other sensor faults. The faults in sensors are represented as biases and changes in scale factor. A parameter estimator based on ...

  • Accelerometer-Based Body Sensor Network (BSN) for Medical Diagnosis Assessment and Training

    Body sensor network (BSN) can provide real-time remote monitoring of the health situation of a particular person. In operation, wearable, miniaturized, and low-power consumption sensors are attached on or implanted in human body for collecting biological signals. In this chapter, the use of accelerometers for BSN for monitoring the body motions is discussed. Recent advances in the computation of motion identification are described including tilting angle, muscle strength, and gait performance and specific computing algorithms, different interpretations of the signal from accelerometers can be formulated. Moreover, several medical diagnosis assessment and training applications are introduced to demonstrate the capability of an accelerometer-based BSN. Furthermore, the concept of using biped humanoid robots to develop the BSN simulation system is discussed. Finally, the BSN simulation system could generate helpful BSN information for evaluating the algorithms' performance in laboratories before the BSN systems are deployed to the human's body.

  • Problems of Barrier and Sweep Coverage in Corridor Environments

    This chapter theoretically develops decentralized control laws for the coordination of a mobile robotic sensor network to address the barrier and sweep coverage problems in corridor environments. The barrier and sweep coverage include, but are not limited to, a military; for example, barrier coverage can be applied to mine deployment and sentry duty; whereas sweep coverage can be used in multi-sensor minesweeping, reconnaissance, maintenance inspection, and ship hull cleaning. The proposed control algorithms are applicable to real-time coverage operations. The control algorithms are illustrated by numerical simulations. Even though the theoretical results on the developed control algorithms are proved for straight corridors, computer simulations demonstrate that the algorithms are effective in curved corridors as well.

  • Natural Actor-Critic for Road Traffic Optimisation

    Current road-traffic optimisation practice around the world is a combination of hand tuned policies with a small degree of automatic adaption. Even state- ofthe- art research controllers need good models of the road traffic, which cannot be obtained directly from existing sensors. We use a policy-gradient reinforcement learning approach to directly optimise the traffic signals, mapping currently deployed sensor observations to control signals. Our trained controllers are (theoretically) compatible with the traffic system used in Sydney and many other cities around the world. We apply two policy-gradient methods: (1) the recent natural actor-critic algorithm, and (2) a vanilla policy-gradient algorithm for comparison. Along the way we extend natural- actor critic approaches to work for distributed and online infinite-horizon problems

  • Middleware Support For Context Handling and Integration in Ubiquitous COMPUTING

    Ubiquitous computing (UC) encompasses sensor-instrumented environments, which are often endowed with wireless network interfaces, in which devices, software agents, and services are integrated in a seamless and transparent way and cooperate to meet high-level goals of human users. This chapter introduces some background concepts on UC. It presents the state-of-the-art for the field of middleware for UC. The requirement of the integration of UC middleware is addressed and an existent solution is described - the Open Context Platform Integration (OpenCOPI) platform. OpenCOPI provides an automatic service composition, a standardized context and communication model, and a fault tolerance mechanism that handles service failures. Another important feature of OpenCOPI is the use of semantic workflows. Finally, the chapter presents a new integration platform for UC. It talks about OpenCOPI as an example of a software system developed to integrate different context provision middleware, with the goal of facilitating the development of context-aware ubiquitous applications.

  • Sweep Coverage Along a Line

    This chapter develops a set of decentralized algorithms for the coordination of a mobile robotic sensor network to address a problem of sweep coverage along a given line. The control laws are based on some consensus algorithms that are computationally efficient and easily implementable. To achieve sweep coverage, the control law drives the network of robotic mobile sensors to form a sensor barrier that moves perpendicularly to the path at a given speed. Also, the separation between each pair of the robots in the sensor barrier can be adjusted. Numerical simulations are presented for a number of scenarios to illustrate the proposed distributed algorithm. To show its practical applicability, the chapter provides computer simulation results for an illustrative example of a sea exploration operation with multiple vessels.
