  • Known and Unknown Facts of LoRa: Experiences from a Large-scale
           Measurement Study
    • Abstract: Jansen C. Liando, Amalinda Gamage, Agustinus W. Tengourtius, Mo Li

      Long Range (LoRa) is a Low-power Wide-area Network technology designed for the Internet of Things. In recent years, it has gained significant momentum among industrial and research communities. Patented by Semtech, LoRa makes use of chirp spread spectrum modulation to deliver data with promises of long battery life, far-reaching communication distances, and a high node density at the cost of data rate. In this article, we conduct a series of experiments to verify the claims made by Semtech on LoRa technology. Our results show that LoRa is capable of communicating over 10km under line-of-sight environments. However, under non-line-of-sight environments, LoRa’s performance is severely affected by obstructions such as buildings and vegetations.

  • Resource-efficient and Automated Image-based Indoor Localization
    • Abstract: Qun Niu, Mingkuan Li, Suining He, Chengying Gao, S. -H. Gary Chan, Xiaonan Luo

      Image-based indoor localization has aroused much interest recently because it requires no infrastructure support. Previous approaches on image-based localization, due to their computation and storage requirements, often process queries at servers. This does not scale well, incurs round-trip delay, and requires constant network connectivity. Many also require users to manually confirm the shortlisted matched landmarks, which is inconvenient, slow, and prone to selection error. To overcome these limitations, we propose a highly automated (in terms of image confirmation after taking images) image-based localization algorithm (HAIL), distributed in mobile devices. HAIL achieves resource efficiency (in terms of storage and processing) by keeping only distinguishing visual features for each landmark, and employing the efficient k-d tree to search for features.

  • A Novel Authenticated Key Agreement Protocol With Dynamic Credential for
    • Abstract: Zheng Yang, Junyu Lai, Yingbing Sun, Jianying Zhou

      Public key cryptographic primitive (e.g., the famous Diffie-Hellman key agreement, or public key encryption) has recently been used as a standard building block in authenticated key agreement (AKA) constructions for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) to provide perfect forward secrecy (PFS), where the expensive cryptographic operation (i.e., exponentiation calculation) is involved. However, realizing such complex computation on resource-constrained wireless sensors is inefficient and even impossible on some devices. In this work, we introduce a new AKA scheme with PFS for WSNs without using any public key cryptographic primitive. To achieve PFS, we rely on a new dynamic one-time authentication credential that is regularly updated in each session.

  • ECT: Exploiting Cross-Technology Transmission for Reducing Packet Delivery
           Delay in IoT Networks
    • Abstract: Wei Wang, Tiantian Xie, Xin Liu, Yao Yao, Ting Zhu

      Recent advances in cross-technology communication have significantly improved the spectrum efficiency in the same Industrial, Scientific, and Medical band among heterogeneous wireless devices (e.g., WiFi and ZigBee). However, further performance improvement in the whole network is hampered because the cross-technology network layer is missing. As the first cross-technology network layer design, our work, named ECT, opens a promising direction for significantly reducing the packet delivery delay via collaborative and concurrent cross-technology communication between WiFi and ZigBee devices. Specifically, ECT can dynamically change the nodes’ priorities and reduce the delivery delay from high-priority nodes under unreliable links. The key idea of ECT is to leverage the concurrent transmission of important data and raw data from ZigBee nodes to the WiFi access point.

  • Routing-Aware and Malicious Node Detection in a Concealed Data Aggregation
           for WSNs
    • Abstract: Wael Alghamdi, Mohsen Rezvani, Hui Wu, Salil S. Kanhere

      Data aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) can effectively reduce communication overheads and reduce the energy consumption of sensor nodes. A WSN needs to be not only energy efficient but also secure. Various attacks may make data aggregation unsecure. We investigate the reliable and secure end-to-end data aggregation problem considering selective forwarding attacks and modification attacks in homogeneous WSNs, and propose two data aggregation approaches. Our approaches, namely Sign-Share and Sham-Share, use secret sharing and signatures to allow aggregators to aggregate the data without understanding the contents of messages and the base station to verify the aggregated data and retrieve the raw data from the aggregated data.

  • LaPS: LiDAR-assisted Placement of Wireless Sensor Networks in Forests
    • Abstract: Silvia Demetri, Gian Pietro Picco, Lorenzo Bruzzone

      The deployment of a wireless sensor network (WSN) is crucial to its reliability and performance. Yet, node placement is typically determined in-field via effort-demanding trial-and-error procedures, because existing approaches over-simplify the radio environment; this especially holds for forests, the focus of this article, where trees greatly affect communication. We present LaPS (LiDAR-assisted Placement for wireless Sensor networks), an approach exploiting remote sensing to identify the best node placement automatically and prior to deployment. Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data acquired for the target forest are automatically processed to estimate its properties (e.g., tree position and diameter) that, once incorporated into a specialized path loss model, enable per-link estimates of the radio signal attenuation induced by trees.

  • Participant Incentive Mechanism Toward Quality-Oriented Sensing:
           Understanding and Application
    • Abstract: Ruiyun Yu, Jiannong Cao, Rui Liu, Wenyu Gao, Xingwei Wang, Junbin Liang

      The ubiquity of ever-more-capable mobile devices, especially smartphones, brings forth participatory sensing to collect and interpret information. It can achieve unprecedented quantity of data. However, it is arduous to guarantee quality of data because everyone can contribute data without scrutinization. It is an important issue in quality-oriented participatory sensing. Our idea to address this issue is motivating participants to contribute accurate data for improving data quality directly. In this article, we propose a reputation-based incentive mechanism, RIM, to realize the idea. More specifically, we identify the participants who collect the accurate data and regard them as the reputable ones. Then, the reputable participants are granted a higher chance to obtain rewards so that other people will try to follow such users and become reputable as well.

  • W3W: Energy Management of Hybrid Energy Supplied Sensors for Internet of
    • Abstract: Qian Zhang, Fan Li, Song Yang, Yu Wang

      The usage of hybrid energy supplied sensors in the Internet of Things has enabled longer lifetime of sensors and expanded scope of applications. These sensors can combine advantages of environmental energy harvesting techniques and wireless energy harvesting techniques. However, how to coordinate them is still a challenge and has not been studied extensively. In this article, we present a system based on mobile crowd wireless charging to manage energy of hybrid energy supplied sensors. When environmental energy is insufficient, the system will utilize smart devices carried by mobile users as chargers to provide wireless energy. We construct and study a W3W problem in the system: when to leverage mobile crowd wireless charging to support rechargeable sensors, where to perform wireless energy transfer, and whom to allocate and incentivize as chargers to maximize useful energy value over all sensors subject to a budget.

  • Network Management of Multicluster RT-WiFi Networks
    • Abstract: Quan Leng, Wei-Ju Chen, Pei-Chi Huang, Yi-Hung Wei, Aloysius K. Mok, Song Han

      Applying wireless technologies in cyber-physical systems (CPSs) has received significant attention in recent years. In our previous work, a high-speed and flexible real-time wireless communication protocol called RT-WiFi was designed to support a wide range of CPSs, and we presented an implementation with a single access point (AP). To serve the CPS applications with communication nodes geographically distributed over a large area, multicluster RT-WiFi networks with multiple APs need to be deployed. Although effective scheduling algorithms have been designed to schedule tasks in RT-WiFi networks with a single AP, uncoordinated packet transmissions from multicluster RT-WiFi networks may suffer from cochannel interferences that cause performance degradation.

  • Optimal Rate Control for Energy-Harvesting Systems with Random Data and
           Energy Arrivals
    • Abstract: Riheng Jia, Jinbei Zhang, Xiao-Yang Liu, Peng Liu, Luoyi Fu, Xinbing Wang

      Due to the random and dynamic energy-harvesting process, it is challenging to conduct optimal rate control in Energy-Harvesting Communication Systems (EHCSs). Existing works mainly focus on two cases: (1) the traffic load is infinite (as long as there is energy, there is data to transmit), in which the objective is to optimize the rate control policy subject to the dynamic energy arrivals, thus maximizing the average system throughput; and (2) the traffic load is finite, in which the objective is to optimize the rate control policy, thus minimizing the time by which all packets are delivered. In this work, we focus on the optimal rate control of EHCSs from another important and practical perspective, where the data and energy arrivals are both random.

  • Rulers on Our Arms: Waving to Measure Object Size through Contactless
    • Abstract: Yang Liu, Yonghang Jiang, Zhenjiang Li, Jianping Wang

      In this article, we propose a mobile system, Aware, which turns our wearable or mobile device into a ruler. It can estimate the size of objects that could be large in size and not directly touchable by the user. Such a design will enable a rich set of applications that count on the size information of surrounding environments/objects. Aware purely utilizes the motion sensors on the device for object size measures. It can also integrate with the crowdsourcing feature for both performance improvement and result sharing. We propose a series of key techniques to address three major challenges in the Aware design: (1) user’s angle of line-of-sights to the object is used in the size measure but motion sensors track only the angle of arm’s waving, (2) motion sensors are noisy that require novel and effective data processing techniques, otherwise the errors could easily overwhelm the final result, and (3) ...

  • Radiation Constrained Fair Charging for Wireless Power Transfer
    • Abstract: Lanlan Li, Haipeng Dai, Guihai Chen, Jiaqi Zheng, Wanchun Dou, Xiaobing Wu

      Recently, wireless power transfer technology (WPT) has attracted considerable attention and become a promising technology to prolong the lifetime of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) by providing perpetual energy to sensors. However, electromagnetic radiation (EMR) incurred by WPT is largely overlooked in most of the existing literature. In this article, we first propose and study the radiation constrained fair charging problem for WPT, i.e., maximizing the minimum utility of sensors by adjusting the power of wireless chargers with no EMR intensity at any location in the field exceeding a given threshold Rt. To address this problem, we first adopt an area discretization method to transform it from nonlinear to linear.

  • A General Framework for Spectrum Sensing Using Dedicated Spectrum Sensor
    • Abstract: Yunhuai Liu, Qian Zhang, Lionel Ni

      Efficient spectrum sensing is essential for the successful application of the Dynamic Spectrum Assignment (DSA) technology in Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs). In conventional spectrum sensing schemes, secondary users (SUs) have to intelligently schedule their sensing and accessing so that the spectrum opportunities are thoroughly exploited while the primary users are not harmed. In this article, we propose a new sensing service model in which a Spectrum Sensor Network (SSN) is employed for spectrum sensing tasks. We will describe the general framework for this SSN-enabled CRN and present the major challenges in such an architecture. We will address one of these challenges and formulate it as a boundary detection problem with unknown erroneous inputs.

  • Extending Battery System Operation via Adaptive Reconfiguration
    • Abstract: Liang He, Linghe Kong, Yu Gu, Cong Liu, Tian He, Kang G. Shin

      Large-scale battery packs are commonly used in applications such as electric vehicles (EVs) and smart grids. Traditionally, to provide stable voltage to the loads, voltage regulators are used to convert battery packs’ output voltage to those of the loads’ required levels, causing power loss especially when the difference between the supplied and required voltages is large or when the load is light. In this article, we address this issue via a reconfiguration framework for the battery system. By abstracting the battery system as a cell graph, we develop an adaptive reconfiguration algorithm to identify the desired system configurations based on real-time load requirements.

  • Memento: An Emotion-driven Lifelogging System with Wearables
    • Abstract: Shiqi Jiang, Zhenjiang Li, Pengfei Zhou, Mo Li

      Due to the increasing popularity of mobile devices, the usage of lifelogging has dramatically expanded. People collect their daily memorial moments and share with friends on the social network, which is an emerging lifestyle. We see great potential of lifelogging applications along with rapid recent growth of the wearables market, where more sensors are introduced to wearables, i.e., electroencephalogram (EEG) sensors, that can further sense the user’s mental activities, e.g., emotions. In this article, we present the design and implementation of Memento, an emotion-driven lifelogging system on wearables. Memento integrates EEG sensors with smart glasses. Since memorable moments usually coincides with the user’s emotional changes, Memento leverages the knowledge from the brain-computer-interface domain to analyze the EEG signals to infer emotions and automatically launch lifelogging based on that.

  • Privacy-Preserving Truth Discovery in Crowd Sensing Systems
    • Abstract: Chenglin Miao, Wenjun Jiang, Lu Su, Yaliang Li, Suxin Guo, Zhan Qin, Houping Xiao, Jing Gao, Kui Ren

      The recent proliferation of human-carried mobile devices has given rise to the crowd sensing systems. However, the sensory data provided by individual participants are usually not reliable. To better utilize such sensory data, the topic of truth discovery, whose goal is to estimate user quality and infer reliable aggregated results through quality-aware data aggregation, has drawn significant attention. Though able to improve aggregation accuracy, existing truth discovery approaches fail to address the privacy concerns of individual users. In this article, we propose a novel privacy-preserving truth discovery (PPTD) framework, which can protect not only users’ sensory data but also their reliability scores derived by the truth discovery approaches.

  • CloudNavi: Toward Ubiquitous Indoor Navigation Service with 3D Point
    • Abstract: Xiaoqiang Teng, Deke Guo, Yulan Guo, Xiaolei Zhou, Zhong Liu

      The rapid development of mobile computing has prompted indoor navigation to be one of the most attractive and promising applications. Conventional designs of indoor navigation systems depend on either infrastructures or indoor floor maps. This article presents CloudNavi, a ubiquitous indoor navigation solution, which relies on the point clouds acquired by the 3D camera embedded in a mobile device. Particularly, CloudNavi first efficiently infers the walking trace of each user from captured point clouds and inertial data. Many shared walking traces and associated point clouds are combined to generate the point cloud traces, which are then used to generate a 3D path-map.

  • Dynamic Enhanced Field Division: An Advanced Localizing and Tracking
    • Abstract: Qingquan Zhang, Yao Yao, Ting Zhu, Ziqiao Zhou, Wei Xu, Ping Yi, Sheng Xiao

      Tracking moving objects is always a critical challenge in cyber-physical systems. Researchers have proposed many tracking algorithms. However, most of the proposed algorithms cannot be used for on-demand deployment because of the unavailable preset fingerprints (prior landmark or context information) in their assumption. Another issue is that those algorithms with models built in an interference-free environment cannot work in interference-rich environments. To address those issues, we propose a localizing and tracking algorithm called Enhanced Field Division (EFD), which dynamically divides the field into areas with unique signatures and tracks the target without any fingerprints.

  • DISH: DIstributed SHuffling Against Selective Jamming Attack in IEEE
           802.15.4e TSCH Networks
    • Abstract: Marco Tiloca, Domenico De Guglielmo, Gianluca Dini, Giuseppe Anastasi, Sajal K. Das

      The MAC standard amendment IEEE 802.15.4e is designed to meet the requirements of industrial and critical applications. In particular, the Time Slotted Channel Hopping (TSCH) mode divides time into periodic, equally sized, slotframes composed of transmission timeslots. Then, it combines time slotted access with multichannel and channel hopping capabilities, providing large network capacity, high reliability, and predictable latency while ensuring energy efficiency. Since every network node considers the same timeslots at each slotframe and selects physical channels according to a periodic function, TSCH produces a steady channel utilization pattern. This can be exploited by a selective jammer to entirely thwart communications of a victim node in a way that is stealthy, effective, and extremely energy efficient.

  • A Framework for the Inference of Sensing Measurements Based on Correlation
    • Abstract: Simone Silvestri, Rahul Urgaonkar, Murtaza Zafer, Bong Jun Ko

      Sensor networks are commonly adopted to collect a variety of measurements in indoor and outdoor settings. However, collecting such measurements from every node in the network, although providing high accuracy and resolution of the phenomena of interest, may easily cause sensors’ battery depletion. In this article, we show that measurement correlation can be successfully exploited to reduce the amount of data collected in the network without significantly sacrificing the monitoring accuracy. In particular, we propose an online adaptive measurement technique with which a subset of nodes are dynamically chosen as monitors while the measurements of the remaining nodes are estimated using the computed correlations.

  • FIRST: A Framework for Optimizing Information Quality in Mobile
           Crowdsensing Systems
    • Abstract: Francesco Restuccia, Pierluca Ferraro, Timothy S. Sanders, Simone Silvestri, Sajal K. Das, Giuseppe Lo Re

      Thanks to the collective action of participating smartphone users, mobile crowdsensing allows data collection at a scale and pace that was once impossible. The biggest challenge to overcome in mobile crowdsensing is that participants may exhibit malicious or unreliable behavior, thus compromising the accuracy of the data collection process. Therefore, it becomes imperative to design algorithms to accurately classify between reliable and unreliable sensing reports. To address this crucial issue, we propose a novel Framework for optimizing Information Reliability in Smartphone-based participaTory sensing (FIRST) that leverages mobile trusted participants (MTPs) to securely assess the reliability of sensing reports. FIRST models and solves the challenging problem of determining before deployment the minimum number of MTPs to be used to achieve desired classification accuracy.

  • CapNet: Exploiting Wireless Sensor Networks for Data Center Power Capping
    • Abstract: Abusayeed Saifullah, Sriram Sankar, Jie Liu, Chenyang Lu, Ranveer Chandra, Bodhi Priyantha

      As the scale and density of data centers continue to grow, cost-effective data center management (DCM) is becoming a significant challenge for enterprises hosting large-scale online and cloud services. Machines need to be monitored, and the scale of operations mandates an automated management with high reliability and real-time performance. The limitations of today’s typical DCM network are many-fold. Primarily, it is a fixed wired network, and hence scaling it for a large number of servers increases its cost. In addition, with server densities increasing over recent years, this network also has to be cabled correctly and the management of this network parallels the complexity of managing a data network, since it needs to be networked with multiple switches and routers.
