  • A Novel and Miniaturized 433/868MHz Multi-band Wireless Sensor Platform for Body Sensor Network Applications

    Body Sensor Network (BSN) technology is seeing a rapid emergence in application areas such as health, fitness and sports monitoring. Current BSN wireless sensors typically operate on a single frequency band (e.g. utilizing the IEEE 802.15.4 standard that operates at 2.45GHz) employing a single radio transceiver for wireless communications. This allows a simple wireless architecture to be realized with low cost and power consumption. However, network congestion/failure can create potential issues in terms of reliability of data transfer, quality-of-service (QOS) and data throughput for the sensor. These issues can be especially critical in healthcare monitoring applications where data availability and integrity is crucial. The addition of more than one radio has the potential to address some of the above issues. For example, multi-radio implementations can allow access to more than one network, providing increased coverage and data processing as well as improved interoperability between networks. A small number of multi-radio wireless sensor solutions exist at present but require the use of more than one radio transceiver devices to achieve multi-band operation. This paper presents the design of a novel prototype multi-radio hardware platform that uses a single radio transceiver. The proposed design allows multi-band operation in the 433/868MHz ISM bands and this, together with its low complexity and small form factor, make it suitable for a wide range of BSN applications.

  • A novel silicon micron amperometric gas sensor

    The authors report on a silicon-based amperometric microelectrochemical gas sensor, based on an innovative design. This sensor shows a faster response (<0.5 s) to NO gas than other types of gas sensors, with good repeatability. Because the substrate is made porous only on the working electrode, the bulk of the substrate can be rather thick to support the very thin silicon porous membrane. The thin membrane allows a shorter and therefore quicker diffusion path to the electrode compared to, for example, thicker porous ceramic substrates which have tortuous path pores. Response and recovery times are therefore reduced over back-cell sensors based on porous ceramic sensors. A detection limit of 5 p.p.m. was achieved for the first generation of these sensors.<<ETX>>

  • Sensor Data Management System in Sensor Network for Low Power

    In the sensor network for supporting the low power high efficiency, this paper described about the sensor data managing method. The sensor node transmits sensing data to the sink node if it perceives the situation of a environment In this case, data are transmitted in case the periodic or the event is generated. Previously reported event data are maintained for the efficient data transmission. If the event which sets up the critical scope in advance and is occurred present exceeds the transfer event and critical scope, it determines as invalid data. By transmitting determined event data it can prevent from the lifetime of the sensor node being shortened by the frequent communication. Moreover, when it has the measured value and the value which is recognized in the error range because of being identical, it instead transmits the simplified data packet signal which is defined about data request of the network management system with measured value and the sensor node can reduce data transmission traffic.

It was fabricated using SOI-technology, Pt- metallization and bulk micromachining. Good characteristics of the sensor array in terms of thermal properties, sensitivity, selectivity and time response have been achieved. The values of gas content and atmospheric humidity evaluated based on the developed sensor models are in a good consistence with the actual values.

  • Poster abstract: TDOA sensor pairing in multi-hop sensor networks

    Acoustic source localization based on time difference of arrival (TDOA) measurements from spatially separated sensors is an important problem in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). While extensive research works have been performed on algorithm development, limited attention has been paid in how to form the sensor pairs. In the literature, most of the works adopt a centralized sensor pairing strategy, where only one common sensor node is chosen as the reference. However, due to the multi-hop nature of WSNs, it is well known that this kind of centralized signal processing method is power consuming since raw measurement data is involved in the transmissions. To reduce the requirements for both network bandwidth and power consumptions, we propose an in-network sensor pairing method to collect the TDOA measurements while guaranteeing the quality of source localization. The solution involves finding a minimal sized dominating set (MSDS) for a graph of the muti-hop network. It has been proved that in-network sensor pairing can result in the same Cramer-Rao-Bound (CRB) as the centralized one but at a far more less communication cost. Furthermore, the structure of the proposed in-network sensor pairing coincides with the decentralized source localization, which is an important application of our method.

  • Web-based sensor streaming wearable for respiratory monitoring applications

    This paper presents a system for remote monitoring of respiration of individuals that can detect respiration rate, mode of breathing and identify coughing events. It comprises a series of polymer fabric-sensors incorporated into a sports vest, a wearable data acquisition platform and a novel rich internet application (RIA) which together enable remote real-time monitoring of untethered wearable systems for respiratory rehabilitation. This system will, for the first time, allow therapists to monitor and guide the respiratory efforts of patients in real-time through a web browser. Changes in abdomen expansion and contraction associated with respiration are detected by the fabric sensors and transmitted wirelessly via a Bluetooth-based solution to a standard computer. The respiratory signals are visualized locally through the RIA and subsequently published to a sensor streaming cloud-based server. A web-based signal streaming protocol makes the signals available as real-time streams to authorized subscribers over standard browsers. We demonstrate real- time streaming of a six-sensor shirt rendered remotely at 40 samples/s per sensor with perceptually acceptable latency (&lt;;0.5s) over realistic network conditions.

  • An actuator real-time placement algorithm based on regular hexagonal grid for wireless sensor and actuator networks

    Network coverage is one of key issues for designing a practical Wireless Sensor and Actuator Network (WSANs). In view of real-time coverage and convergence of mobility coverage, an actuator real-time placement algorithm based on regular hexagonal grid for WSANs (ARP-RGH) is proposed. In this algorithm, firstly, a regular hexagonal grid plot algorithm is used to choose the idea location of actuators for maximizing the monitoring area coverage of the network from a theoretical perspective; and then, the actuators are spreaded in the form of uniform distribution by a moving algorithm based on virtual forces; at last, according to the ideal location calculated before, the optimal location of actuators is given by real-time coverage rounds algorithm. ARP-RHG algorithm implements the optimal coverage of actuators under real-time coverage constrain conditions, and makes the actuators avoid moving into the holes of sensor distribution. The results of the simulation show that the ARP-RHG algorithm has good coverage and convergence.

Detailed experimental design and simulation are evaluated in the experiment section to show the effectiveness and efficiency of the new scheme.
