PhD Thesis: Prediction-Based Strategies for Reducing Data Transmissions in the IoT

Abstract: Predictions about the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the next years are optimistic. The number of interconnected devices will continue to grow exponentially, as well as the amount of data that they...


The use of information processing techniques in WSN simulations

In pursuance of integrating Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) with other systems, the use of techniques from other fields, such as machine learning and information processing, are becoming more common. That is, the networks produce information about...


Network Simulators

Simulators are used to model the components of a system and reproduce results under previously defined conditions. Nowadays, there are many open source network simulators that people can download for personal, academic or commercial...


Collaboration Between Wireless Sensor Networks using Information Exchange

My PhD proposal. Wireless sensor nodes are usually composed by a micro-controller and powered by batteries. Additionally, each node has at least one of four possible interfaces to interact with the external world, which...


Performance Optimization of WSNs using External Information

Different types of WSNs may be deployed in similar areas in order to measure semantically linked data, for example, temperature and humidity. Therefore, these data could be combined to enhance the accuracy of different WSNs without increasing their measurement rate and...
