Mobile crowdsensing is a novel paradigm to collect sensing data and extract useful information about regions of interest. It widely employs incentive mechanisms to recruit a number of mobile users to fulfill coverage requirement in the interested regions. In practice, sensing service providers face a pressing optimization problem: How to maximize the valuation of the covered interested regions... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This paper presents a queueing analytical framework for the performance evaluation of the secondary user (SU) packet transmission with service differentiation in a point-to-multipoint underlay cognitive radio network. The transmit power of the SU transmitter is subject to the joint outage constraint imposed by the primary user receivers (PU-Rxs) and the SU maximum transmit power limit. The...

In this paper, the design of priority-aware truthful mechanisms for multi-class delay-sensitive medical packet transmissions in electronic health (e-health) networks is studied. Unlike most of existing works, we focus on beyond wireless body area network (beyond-WBAN) communications, and consider the absolutely prioritized transmission scheduling as the realization of medical-grade quality of...

Recent advances in robotics and low-power embedded systems made three-dimensional (3D) mobile wireless sensor networks (MSNs) an effective solution for monitoring a field of interest (FoI). From a cost perspective, it is often important to ensure the desired coverage ratio for the FoI within a maximum allowable response (MAR) time, by using a minimum number of sensors in MSNs. The literature on... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Wireless charging technology is considered as a promising solution to address the energy limitation problem for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In scenarios where the deployed chargers are static, we generally require a number of chargers to work simultaneously. However, due to the radio interference among different wireless chargers, scheduling these chargers is generally necessary. This... Read more on IEEE Xplore
