Deployment of surface-level gateways holds potential as an effective method to alleviate high-propagation delays and high-error probability in an underwater wireless sensor network (UWSN). This promise comes from reducing distances to underwater nodes and using radio waves to forward information to a control station. In an UWSN, a dynamic energy ef...

There is a growing interest in quantum image processing (QImP) that rose from the desire to exploit the properties of quantum computing to improve the performance of classical techniques and their applications. While Fourier transform (FT) is one of the most important algorithms used in signal and image processing, it is also considered a key ingre...

Energy efficiency and mobility robustness are two of the main performance metrics to be addressed when designing any rout-ing protocol for underwater sensor network (UWSN). Energy efficiency leads to a prolonged network life time, while mobility robustness ensures high and stable delivery ratio. Most of the routing strategies designed for UWSN requ...
Conference Paper
Optimal deployment of multi-surface gateways is a challenging task that has been shown to improve the performance of underwater sensor networks (UWSN). However, the dynamics of both the surface gateways and the underlying sensor deployments can impair the benefits of an initial deployment. In this paper we opt to tackle the dynamics of the underwat...

Conference Paper
The performance of Underwater Sensor Networks (UWSNs) can be severely affected by the dynamics of underwater environment. A surface sink is usually deployed at a pre-specified location to maximize one or more performance metrics. However, when the network is dynamic, a redeployment of surface sink should be considered to reduce the effect of mobili...

The performance of underwater sensor networks (UWSNs) is greatly limited by the low bandwidth and high propagation delay of acoustic communications. Deploying multiple surface-level radio-capable gateways can enhance UWSN performance metrics, reducing end-to-end delays and distributing traffic loads for energy reduction. In this paper, we study the...
Conference Paper
In underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs), one efficient way to alleviate the burdens of high propagation delay and high error probability during transmission is to deploy surface-level gateways, which utilize radio waves to forward information to a control station. Usually, deployment of the gateways is considered as an optimization problem w...

A wireless sensor network (WSN) consists of large number of sensor nodes where each node operates by a finite battery for sensing, computing, and performing wireless communication tasks. Energy aware routing and MAC protocols were proposed to prolong the lifetime of WSNs. MAC protocols reduce energy consumption by putting the nodes into sleep mode...

The efficiency of sensor networks strongly depends on the routing protocol used. In this paper, we analyze three different types of routing protocols: LEACH, PEGASIS, and VGA. Sensor networks aresimulated using Sensoria simulator. Several simulations are conducted to analyze the performance of these protocols including the power consumption and ove...
