Simulative Performance Evaluation for Wireless Sensor Networks

Recently, there has been a growing research interest in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) as their unique features allow a wide range of applications in the areas of military, environment, health and home. They are usually composed of a large number of densely deployed sensing devices which can transmit their data to the desired user through multi-hop relays. As sensing devices carry limited, in general irreplaceable power sources, one of the most important constraints for WSNs is low power consumption.

The aim of this project is to produce a simulation model of a WSN and evaluate its performance using appropriate figures of merit. It will investigate the state-of-the-art techniques for WSNs. The students will study low-complexity adaptive filtering, channel estimation and power allocation algorithms for WSNs and develop a software package in an appropriate programming language (such as MATLAB) of the above algorithms implemented for WSNs in realistic environments.


The first meeting for the institute project is on Friday 17th April, 4 p.m., in UMIC-Building (Room 105).
