How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Conference Paper
Wireless sensor networks are often deployed in harsh environments where they are exposed to extreme conditions. The influences and faults resulting from these conditions are often overlooked. As there are many possibilities for the occurrence of faults, dependability considerations are of high importance. In this work we present an approach for cho...
Article
Wireless sensor network WSN nodes called motes are small wireless embedded devices. They suffer from limitations of their power supplies and available bandwidth as well as in their memory and computational power. As a promising approach, network coding NC provides means of relaxing the combined problem of limited supplies and bandwidth. We present...
Conference Paper
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) consist of wirelessly communicating nodes with an autarkic power supply for each node. Typically, the consumable energy of these nodes is very limited. Energy harvesting systems (EHSs) can be used to extend the lifetime or even enable perpetual operation of the sensor nodes. Applicable energy-aware WSN protocols and...
Article
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are power critical systems, because they are used in application areas without wired infrastructure. Each sensor node needs a dedicated power supply. Today's protocols and applications for WSNs are often power-aware. However, the state-of-charge (SoC) estimation of the energy storage component (e.g. rechargeable batt...
Conference Paper
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) suffer from the lack of wired infrastructure. Each node needs its own power supply, e.g. batteries or energy harvesting systems (EHSs). Typically, EHSs can extend the lifetime of a sensor node or even enable perpetual operation. Due to the high variation of harvestable energy of the environment, the design of the EHS...
Conference Paper
In this work, we show how to use a leaky bucket counter (LBC) as a sophisticated threshold mechanism for detecting events in wireless sensor networks. After introducing the LBC and elaborating on various special cases for different possibilities of event detection, we present a case study. Using varying parameters, we compare the performance of the...

Conference Paper
Event detection using wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has become a new field of research in the past years, increasing the need for dependability and fault tolerance. Our work exploits the massive redundancy of large WSNs in combination with neighbours' relations to identify faulty nodes. We present a new approach to categorize nodes in being fault...
Conference Paper
The theory of network coding is hardly ever used and cannot be mapped to general wireless sensor network (WSN) topologies without careful consideration of technology constraints. Severe energy constraints and low bandwidth are faced by platforms of low computational power. We show how network coding methods can be implemented with low computational...
