Conference Paper
Full-text available
Repairing connectivity and achieving a certain level of fault tolerance are two important research challenges in wireless sensor networks that have, in many papers in the literature, been jointly studied. Most of the proposals that aim at restoring network connectivity deal with the network as a general graph of N nodes with the edge cost being the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Exploiting mobility to enhance the performance of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), in terms of connectivity, coverage, and lifetime elongation, has recently been the focus of several research studies. Mobility was adopted in two different ways; either using a network of mobile sensor nodes or deploying a few supplementary special mobile elements, u...
Conference Paper

In this work, we consider the multicast problem in a single cell in a cognitive mesh network. Due to the potential heterogeneity in channel availability among the members of a multicast group(s), the total multicast time could be longer due to transmitting the multicast data over multiple channels. We propose, in this work, an assisted multicast st...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Due to the wide range of applications in sensors and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), research in this area has recently received increasing attention. WSNs rely on network connectivity to deliver data to a base station through multihop communication. However, connectivity may not be always achievable for a number of reasons. In this paper, we study...

Cognitive radio networks (CRN) have emerged as a promising, yet challenging, solution to enhance spectrum utilization, thanks to the technology of cognitive radios. In this work, we consider the multicast routing and channel allocation problem in cognitive radio mesh networks. Due to the potential heterogeneity in channel availability among mesh ro...
Article
Spectrum Sensing as a Service (SSaS) has recently emerged as a promising solution to realize dynamic spectrum access networks (aka, cognitive radio networks (CRNs)). This paradigm relies on a dedicated infrastructure wireless sensor network, operated by a spectrum sensing service provider S³P entity, for spectrum monitoring. Wireless users which ar...
Article
Full-text available
With the emergence of cognitive radios, the open spectrum access paradigm that is proposed to overcome the shortcomings of the traditional spectrum allocation paradigm became viable. Researchers have been accumulating efforts to verify the validity of existing networking schemes and protocols as well as designing new ones for this new paradigm. As...
Article
Full-text available
Spectrum-sensing as a service has been proposed and studied by many researchers over the past decade as a promising approach to support the viability of cognitive radio networks (CRNs). A spectrum-sensing service provider (SSP) provides information about spectrum occupancy to its clients that is generally more accurate than what clients can learn o...
Article
Energy is increasingly becoming the major constraint in designing multicore chips. Power and performance are the main components of energy and are inversely correlated. In this paper, we study the energy optimization of multicore chips that process parallel workloads using either power or performance optimization. To do so, we propose novel machine...
Article
Full-text available
The traditional fixed spectrum assignment policy, in wireless networks, has led to significant underutilization (both spatially and temporally) of some licensed spectrum bands and crowdedness of unlicensed spectrum bands. These challenges gave birth to the new spectrum utilization paradigm called “Opportunistic Spectrum Access (OSA)”. Networks that...

Diabetes is considered a chronic disease that incurs various types of cost to the world. One major challenge in the control of Diabetes is the real time determination of the proper insulin dose. In this paper, we develop a prototype for real time blood sugar control, integrated with the cloud. Our system controls blood sugar by observing the blood...
Article
In this paper, we study the channel allocation problem in cognitive radio wireless mesh networks (CR-WMNs). We aim at finding an allocation strategy that guarantees quality of service (QoS) (link reliability), maximizes network coverage, and alleviates the need for a common control channel to coordinate the communication process. The allocation of...
Conference Paper
The design for continuous computer performance is increasingly becoming limited by the exponential increase in the power consumption. In order to improve the energy efficiency of multicore chips, we propose a novel global power management technique. The goal of the technique is to deliver the maximum performance at a fixed power budget, without sig...
Conference Paper

We develop a prototype for real-time blood sugar control based on the hypothesis that there is a medical challenge in determining the exact, real-time insulin dose. Our system controls blood sugar by observing the blood sugar level and automatically determining the appropriate insulin dose based on patient’s historical data, all in real time. At th...
Article
Cognitive radio networks (CRNs) have emerged as a promising, yet challenging, solution to enhance spectrum utilization, thanks to the technology of cognitive radios. A well-known property of CRNs is the potential heterogeneity in channel availability among secondary users. Therefore, multicast throughput in CRNs may suffer from significant degradat...

Network fragmentation is a potential problem in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) due to many reasons like, node failures or environmental conditions (obstacles) that prevent connected deployments. One approach to cope with this problem is to have a mobile sink node (MS) patrol the network field and collect the data from all the fragments across the...

Multi-agent collaboration or teamwork and learning are critical research challenges especially for a large number of multi-agent applications. In multi-agent system, agents must accurately perceive and act despite a quickly changing and noisy environment. They have to act not only at individual skills but also at collaborative and adversarial behav...
