  • Message-ferrying delay-tolerant routing in linear wireless sensor
           networks

      Authors: Imad Jawhar, Sheng Zhang, Jie Wu, Nader Mohamed
      Pages: 1 - 17
      Abstract: Due to linearity of a monitored structure, wireless sensor network (WSN) topology exhibits a linear form and the resulting network is named a linear sensor network (LSN). In order to communicate data from sensor nodes (SNs) to the sink, a multi-hop approach can be used. However, this would result in significant transmission energy loss, as the SNs would be involved in the transmission of their data as well as the data from other sensor nodes. In this paper, we introduce a ferry-based LSN (FLSN) model, where a ferry node such as a robot or other types of moving vehicles goes along the LSN, collects the data from the SNs and delivers it to the sink at the end of the network. Overall, this approach saves SN energy, increases network lifetime, and reduces transmission interference. Four ferry movement algorithms are presented, simulated and analysed under various network conditions.

  • A practical solution for blockchain-secured sharing of trustworthy traffic
           information in vehicular ad hoc networks

      Pages: 18 - 33
      Abstract: The extensive use of vehicles nowadays and the emergency of autonomous driving urge the improvement of traffic safety. Prevalent approaches competent at preventing road accidents are inseparable from the trustworthy data acquisition. But in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), data transmission and storage are unreliable due to constrained resource and unsteady topology. Currently, distribution is widely applied into VANETs for multifold data protection and blockchain becomes preferred with its distributed consensus and ledger for data trust protection. Therefore, we propose a system in this paper, which employs blockchain technology to secure the sharing of visual traffic information. As proposed, the sequence of frames is used for their integrity consensus, the transaction capacity is adjusted according to the frame types, and transcoding frames is defined via smart contracts; thus, traffic information gains more in-depth protection. With the proposed system, vehicles can confidently use the information for safety guidance.

  • Virtual resource mapping in wireless sensor networks based on the maximum
           independent link set

      Pages: 34 - 40
      Abstract: To solve the problems of low mapping success rate, high mapping energy consumption, and low conversion rate of high-dimensional data existing in traditional methods, this paper proposes a virtual resource mapping method based on the maximum independent link set. A vector space model to reduce the dimensionality of the virtual wireless sensor networks (WSNs) resource data was adopted. A support vector machine to input the dimensionality reduction results into the resource feature space for resource classification to obtain the independent link set and label in virtual links of the WSNs was also adopted. According to the maximum independent link set, we design the network virtual resource mapping process to complete the resource mapping. Experimental results show that, compared with other methods, our method has a higher success rate of resource mapping, lower energy consumption, and higher conversion rate of high-dimensional data.

  • Dynamic bandwidth estimation and congestion avoidance based on network
           traffic in mobile cloud

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: S.P. Tamizhselvi, M. Vijayalakshmi
      Pages: 41 - 55
      Abstract: Smartphone faces many QoS challenges due to network traffic, bandwidth, congestion, delay and packet loss. We propose a novel framework to solve the issues, namely, network traffic-aware dynamic bandwidth estimation and congestion avoidance in the mobile cloud. Three algorithms in the cloud, namely, network bandwidth cloud estimation (NBCE) algorithm, cloud estimated queueing delay (CEQD) algorithm, and cloud bandwidth congestion avoidance (CBCA) algorithm. NBCE utilises the actual bandwidth based on different mobile network traffic. CEQD determines the delay to minimise the packet loss. Finally, CBCA reduces the congestion using estimated bandwidth and queue length. The algorithms were implemented in the public cloud Amazon Web Service (AWS) and evaluated. NBCE utilises the actual bandwidth of 88%, 80%, and 67% for different network traffic compared with existing TCP variants to provide improved network performance. CEQD minimises the average delay to 20 ms, and CBCA improves 5%, 4%, 4% goodput in other network traffic.
      Keywords: network traffic; bandwidth estimation; queueing delay; congestion avoidance; mobile cloud; quality of service; packet loss rate; throughput; goodput; congestion window

  • Two-stage pricing strategy for personal cloud storage: free trial and the
           cloud security risk

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mengdi Yao, Donglin Chen
      Pages: 56 - 66
      Abstract: A common approach to attract potential cloud users is to offer a two-stage pricing strategy to enhance the perceived value. This value is based on the willingness of diverse cloud users to pay and the market stages of cloud storage providers (CSPs). However, the risk of breaching cloud security in the free trial stage due to the sharing of personal cloud storage products (PCSPs) may decrease the number of cloud users. Consequently, the study proposes a two-stage pricing strategy to make a trade-off between the cloud security risk and the perceived value. Furthermore, it aims to uncover the conditions under different security risk coefficients. It selects the optimal pricing strategy to help CSPs determine the free trial time and optimal price. Our findings can provide helpful insight in devising an optimal pricing strategy by CSPs considering security risks, which assures the safety of PCSPs and benefits CSPs by increasing profits.

  • Simulation-based usability evaluation of visually impaired outdoor
           navigation using sensor fusion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Chathurika Sewwandi Silva, Prasad Wimalaratne
      Pages: 67 - 74
      Abstract: Conducting evaluation experiments with assistive navigation in real-life environments with visually impaired subjects is challenging for several reasons. Hence, simulation-based usability evaluation experiments are a pragmatic and cost-effective approach in such studies. This study presents sensor fusion in a virtual simulation of assistive navigation, including obstacle detection, localisation and motion planning. The obstacle detection involves a complementary sensor fusion approach to detect static and dynamic obstacles via vision and obstacle sensing. Localisation is carried out using Kalman filter-based sensor fusion of measurement data acquired by inertial measurements using an accelerometer and gyroscope as well as global positioning system (GPS) data of the visually impaired navigator. Precise motion planning for local and global navigation is based on the fused signals through obstacle detection and localisation modules. The evaluation showed that experiments effectively estimate the trajectory of a visually impaired navigator by fusing the heterogeneous sensor measurements in a virtual environment.
