Securing a wireless channel between any two vehicles is a crucial component of vehicular networks security. This can be done by using a secret key to encrypt the messages. We propose a scheme to allow two cars to extract a shared secret from RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) values in such a way that nearby cars cannot obtain the same key. The key is information-theoretically secure, i.e... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Optimizing energy consumption is paramount to sustain the growth of cellular networks. One of the approaches to reduce energy consumption is traffic dependent operation of networks. The traffic demand experienced by the network fluctuates over the duration of a day. Therefore, during the periods of low traffic, we may re-configure the network to trade the excess capacity for energy reduction. For... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Energy efficiency is a critical issue of wireless devices. As the packets are broadcast to the devices in the wireless transmission media, all active neighboring devices have to spend their energy receiving the packets though the packets are not addressed to them, which is called as the packet overhearing problem. The real-world traffic trace analysis reveals that the energy cost on the packet... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Cross-correlation is a popular signal processing technique used in numerous location tracking systems for obtaining reliable <italic>range</italic> information. However, its efficient design and practical implementation has not yet been achieved on mote platforms that are typical in wireless sensor network due to resource constrains. In this paper, we propose <italic>StructS-... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Recent trends in wireless networking such as small cells and network function virtualization, strongly suggest that the future cellular network will consist of many sub-networks controlled by self-interest operators competing for a share of the revenues associated with the high demand for service. This paper attempts to analyze the future network performance under these new market conditions,... Read more on IEEE Xplore
