DVFS is a widely used methodology for reducing the power consumption of mobile devices. This scheme involves frequency scaling in accordance with a specific governor and the establishment of an operating voltage to be paired with frequency. Incorporated into the settings for operating voltage is a guardband that ensures safe processor operation even at the worst conditions of on-chip temperature... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Most previous spectrum sensing techniques use omni-directional antennas. Unlike omni-directional antennas, the use of directional antennas for spectrum sensing is a promising technique that can realize fine-grained sensing for the primary user (PU) with a longer sensing range. In this paper, we propose a centralized cooperative directional sensing technique for cognitive radio networks. We assume... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Mobile crowdsensing (MCS) is a novel and appealing sensing paradigm that leverages the diverse embedded sensors of massive mobile devices to collect different kinds of data. One of the key challenges in MCS is to efficiently schedule mobile device users to perform different sensing tasks. Prior effort to this problem mainly focused on the interaction between the task-layer and the user-layer,... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In recent years, the use of smartphones has increased exponentially, and so have their capabilities. Together with an increase in processing power, smartphones are now equipped with a variety of sensors and provide an extensive set of API. These capabilities allow us to extract data related to environment, user habits, and operating system itself. This data is extremely valuable in many research... Read more on IEEE Xplore

This paper studies the coverage problem in an unknown environment by a Mobile Sensor Network (MSN). Each agent in the MSN has communication, sensing, moving, and computation capabilities to complete sensing tasks. These agents would have some limitations on time and energy to accomplish their tasks that need to be considered by the designers. Here, the agents need to relocate themselves, from...
