Virtual coordinate based techniques for wireless sensor networks: a simulation tool and localization & planarization algorithms
Wireless sensor Networks (WSNs) are deployments of smart sensor devices for monitoring environmental or physical phenomena. These sensors have the ability to communicate with other sensors within communication range or with a base station. Each sensor, at a minimum, comprises of sensing, processing, transmission, and power units. This thesis focuses on virtual coordinate based techniques in WSNs. Virtual Coordinates (VCs) characterize each node in a network with the minimum hop distances to a set of anchor nodes, as its coordinates. It provides a compelling alternative to some of the localization ...
