Effective Node Clustering And Data Dissemination In Large-Scale Wireless Sensor Networks, Mariam Saeed Ai Nuaimi Nov 2015

Effective Node Clustering And Data Dissemination In Large-Scale Wireless Sensor Networks, Mariam Saeed Ai Nuaimi

Theses

The denseness and random distribution of large-scale WSNs makes it quite difficult to replace or recharge nodes. Energy efficiency and management is a major design goal in these networks. In addition, reliability and scalability are two other major goals that have been identified by researchers as necessary in order to further expand the deployment of such networks for their use in various applications. This thesis aims to provide an energy efficient and effective node clustering and data dissemination algorithm in large-scale wireless sensor networks. In the area of clustering, the proposed research prolongs the lifetime of the network by saving ...
