    ACM Trans. Sens. Netw. (IF 2.469) Pub Date : 2020-11-17
    Yufan Zhang; Ertao Li; Yi-Hua Zhu

    The common backscatter communications (ComBC), widely applied in wireless powered networks such as the RFID systems, exhibit the shortcoming that only a few bits are backscattered at a time due to energy limitation. It is significant to improve energy efficiency in backscatter communications so more data can be delivered within one backscatter. In this article, the energy-efficient dual-codebook based

    Drowsiness detection is critical to driver safety, considering thousands of deaths caused by drowsy driving annually. Professional equipment is capable of providing high detection accuracy, but the high cost limits their applications in practice. The use of mobile devices such as smart watches and smart phones holds the promise of providing a more convenient, practical, non-invasive method for drowsiness

  • Ultra-wideband Concurrent Ranging
    ACM Trans. Sens. Netw. (IF 2.469) Pub Date : 2020-09-16
    Pablo Corbalán; Gian Pietro Picco

    We propose a novel concurrent ranging technique for distance estimation with ultra-wideband (UWB) radios. Conventional schemes assume that the necessary packet exchanges occur in isolation to avoid collisions. Concurrent ranging relies on the overlapping of replies from nearby responders to the same ranging request issued by an initiator node. As UWB transmissions rely on short pulses, the individual

    ACM Trans. Sens. Netw. (IF 2.469) Pub Date : 2020-09-10
    Daibo Liu; Zhichao Cao; Mengshu Hou; Huigui Rong; Hongbo Jiang

    Concurrent transmission (CT) has been widely adopted to optimize the throughput of various data transmissions in wireless networks, such as bulk data dissemination and high-rate data collection. In CT, besides the possible data frame collision at receivers, we observe that acknowledgment frame (ACK) collision at senders can also significantly diminish concurrency opportunities. In this article, to

    ACM Trans. Sens. Netw. (IF 2.469) Pub Date : 2020-09-05
    Ping Zhao; Jiaxin Sun; Guanglin Zhang

    Data aggregation based on machine learning (ML), in mobile edge computing, allows participants to send ephemeral parameter updates of local ML on their private data instead of the exact data to the untrusted aggregator. However, it still enables the untrusted aggregator to reconstruct participants’ private data, although parameter updates contain significantly less information than the private data

  • Resilience Bounds of Network Clock Synchronization with Fault Correction
    ACM Trans. Sens. Netw. (IF 2.469) Pub Date : 2020-09-05
    Linshan Jiang; Rui Tan; Arvind Easwaran

    Naturally occurring disturbances and malicious attacks can lead to faults in synchronizing the clocks of two network nodes. In this article, we investigate the fundamental resilience bounds of network clock synchronization for a system of N nodes against the peer-to-peer synchronization faults. Our analysis is based on practical synchronization algorithms with time complexity down to O(N3) that attempt

    Crowdsensing is a popular method that leverages a crowd of sensor users to collect data. For many crowdsensing applications, the collected raw data need to be preprocessed before further analysis, and the preprocessing work is mainly done by the crowdsourcer. However, as the amount of collected data increases, this type of preprocessing approach has many disadvantages. In this article, we construct

    With the proliferation of smart devices, children can be easily exposed to violent or adult-only content on the Internet. Without any precaution, the premature and unsupervised use of smart devices can be harmful to both children and their parents. Thus, it is critical to employ parent patrol mechanisms such that children are restricted to child-friendly content only. A successful parent patrol strategy

    In the past decade, unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) have been widely used in various civilian applications, most of which involve only a single unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In the near future, more and more UAS applications will be facilitated by the cooperation of multiple UAVs. In such applications, it is desirable to utilize a general control platform for cooperative UAVs. However, existing open-source

    ACM Trans. Sens. Netw. (IF 2.469) Pub Date : 2020-05-22
    Mehrdad Salimitari; Shameek Bhattacharjee; Mainak Chatterjee; Yaser P. Fallah

    As Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical systems become more ubiquitous in our daily lives, it necessitates the capability to measure the trustworthiness of the aggregate data from such systems to make fair decisions. However, the interpretation of trustworthiness is contextual and varies according to the risk tolerance attitude of the concerned application. In addition, there exist varying levels

  • Time-efficient Missing Tag Identification in an Open RFID System
    ACM Trans. Sens. Netw. (IF 2.469) Pub Date : 2020-05-10
    Yanyan Wang; Jia Liu; Xia Wang; Xingyu Chen; Yingli Yan; Lijun Chen

    Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology has been widely used in missing tag identification to reduce the economic loss caused by theft. Although many advanced works have been proposed, they cannot work properly in an open RFID system with unexpected tags. That is because the unexpected tags may reply to the reader when it is the missing tags’ turn, such that the replies are mistakenly treated

    Lawns, also known as turf, cover an estimated 128,000 km2 in North America alone, with landscape requirements representing 30% of freshwater consumed in the residential domain. With this consumption comes a large amount of environmental, economic, and social incentive to make turf irrigation systems as efficient as possible. Recent work introduced the concept of distributed control in irrigation systems
