Abstract


Underground pipelines constitute one of the most important ways to transport large amounts of
fluid (e.g. oil and water) through long distances. However, existing leakage detection techniques
do not work well in monitoring the underground pipelines due to
the harsh underground
environmental conditions. In this paper, a new solution, the
magnetic induction

(
MI
)
-
based
wireless sensor network for underground pipeline monitoring (MISE
-
PIPE)
, is introduced to
provide low
-
cost and real
-
time leakage detection and
localization for underground pipelines.
MISE
-
PIPE detects and localizes leakage by jointly utilizing the measurements of different types
of sensors that are located both inside and around the underground pipelines. By adopting an MI
waveguide technique, th
e measurements of different types of the sensors throughout the pipeline
network can be reported to the administration center in real
-
time. The system architecture and
operational framework of MISE
-
PIPE is first developed. Based on the operational framewor
k,
research challenges and open research issues are then discussed.

Abstract


The conventional border patrol systems suffer from intensive human involvement.
Recently, unmanned border patrol systems employ high
-
tech devices, such as unmanned
aerial vehicles, unattended ground sensors, and surveillance towers equipped with
camera se
nsors. However, any single technique encounters inextricable problems, such
as high false alarm rate and line
-
of
-
sight
-
constraints. There lacks a coherent system that
coordinates various technologies to improve the system accuracy. In this paper, the
conce
pt of
BorderSense
, a hybrid wireless sensor network architecture for border patrol
systems, is introduced. BorderSense utilizes the most advanced sensor network
technologies, including the wireless multimedia sensor networks and the wireless
underground se
nsor networks. The framework to deploy and operate BorderSense is
developed. Based on the framework, research challenges and open research issues are
discussed

Abstract

On
-
demand routing protocols used in mobile ad hoc networks suffer from transmitting a
huge number of control packets which increases the overhead. In this new algorithm
(ERDA), we try to improve the route discovery algorithm by reducing the routing
overhea
d in the presence of random traffic. ERDA broadcasts any route request
travelling within their source node’s neighbourhood region according to the routing
algorithm used. However, propagation of the route request is deliberately delayed
outside this region

to provide the associated chase packet with an opportunity to stop the
fulfilled route request and minimise network congestion. The algorithm is adaptive and
continuously updates the boundary of each source node’s neighbourhood to improve
performance. We
provide detailed performance evaluation using simulation modelling.
Our result shows that ERDA improves the performance by minimizing the average end
-
to
-
end delay as well as the network overhead and congestion level.

Abstract



Blocking
-
ERS is an energy efficient route discovery algorithm for MANETs. It uses chase
packets to improve the route request process. In Blocking
-
ERS, most of the time the fulfilled route
request manages to escape from the chase packet with the help of mob
ility. So its success rate in
the catching process is low due to the immature discard of chase packets. We are proposing an
improved algorithm named Blocking
-
ERS
-
Plus to overcome this deficiency in Blocking
-
ERS by
allowing chase packets be broadcasted unti
l the catching is insured to maximise the success rate.
We provide detailed performance evaluation using simulation modelling and compare Blocking
-
ERS
-
Plus with both Blocking
-
ERS and AODV. Our findings show that Blocking
-
ERS
-
Plus
outperforms both Blocking
-
ERS and AODV by reducing end
-
to
-
end delay due to the reduction in
network congestion and by improving route request latency, routing overhead, and packet loss due
to the higher success rate in the catching process which has positive impact on the network
p
erformance.

Abstract

As serious natural disasters, sandstorms have caused massive damages to the natural

environment, national economy, and human health in the Middle
East, Northern Africa,

and Northern China. To avoid such damages, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) can be

deployed in the regions where sandstorms generally originate so that sensor nodes can
collaboratively monitor the origin and development of sandstorms.

Despite the potential

advantages, the deployment of WSNs in the vicinity of sandstorms faces many unique
challenges, such as the temporally buried sensors and increased path loss during
sandstorms. Consequently, the WSNs may experience frequent disconnect
ions during the
sandstorms.In this paper, the connectivity issue of WSNs for sandstorm monitoring is
studied. First, four types of channels a sensor can utilize during sandstorms are analyzed,
which include air
-
to
-
air channel, air
-
to
-
sand channel, sand
-
to
-
air channel, and sand
-
to
-
sand channel. Based on these analytical results, the percolation
-
based connectivity
analysis is performed.It is shown that if the sensors are buried in shallow depth, allowing
sensor to use multiple types of channels improves netwo
rk connectivity. Accordingly,
much smaller sensor density is required compared to the case, where only terrestrial air
channels are used. Through this connectivity analysis, a WSN architecture can be
established for efficient and effective

sandstorm monit
oring.
