(Funded by NSF, 2006 - 2007)
• Objective
• Methodology
Hybrid approach dynamically
combines unequal error protection
(UEP) coding scheme and automatic
repeat request (ARQ) protocol.
• UEP explores scalability of
MPEG-4 and selectively
augments its bit stream with
error-correction bits to minimize
the loss of key symbols while
tolerating errors in visually less
sensitive details.
• Delay-aware ARQ provides a
safety net for burst errors and
maintain the strict delay
constraint.

Control/Communication Scheme for Mobile Sensor Networks
Objectives
Requirements
A cluster-based Control Architecture and Communication Scheme
(CACS) had been developed in the same project for a stationary
and low mobility sensor networks in the same project. It needs to
be generalized and enriched:
• Multi-mobility: nodes can be stationary, or mobile with low or
high mobility
• Multi-optimality: the scheme should maximize network
throughput, network lifetime and ensure QoS
Design of Communication Backbone
high-mobility nodes
high-mobility nodes
(1)The Stationary and low-mobility
nodes form a cluster-based
reconfigurable communication
backbone.
(2) High-mobility nodes join the
nearest cluster as members. Their
joining or leaving do not change the
backbone; therefore, do not cause
significant problems for network
reconfiguration.
• High-mobility nodes can have two different
behaviors:
(1) as end-users of receiving services; and
(2) as nodes of the sensor network providing data
and support fusion.
• The joining and leaving of the high-mobility
nodes should be time and energy efficient..

Real Time Task and Resource Management for large Sensor Networks
Objectives
Approaches
Develop a Task and Resource Management System
(TRMS) for optimally allocating resources in real
time on a large sensor network. The goal is to
achieve both high QoS and long network lifetime.
Global TRMS at the base station:
•
Break down a user task into
elemental tasks
•
Determine the resource and
price needed for each
elemental task based on the
current network status and user
requirements.
Cluster TRMS at each cluster head:
Select member nodes for each
elemental task based on the
available resource at each
node.
Node TRMS at each member node:
Autonomously adjust the resource at
the node for QoS and energy
saving.
• Decentralize the Task and Sensor Management Approach
(developed in PSU) and embed it into the hierarchical Control
and Communication Scheme (developed in TSU) for a clusterbased sensor network.
• Experimental approaches will be used for integration.

• Implement the TRMSs.
Global TRMS and Cluster
TRMS are centralized
systems. Node TRMS is an
autonomous system.
• Embed the TRMSs into the
Control and Communication
Scheme (developed in TSU)
so that the TRMSs can
dynamically allocate the
resource based on the current
network and resource status.

Data Query & Collection Protocols on Mobile Sensor Networks
Objectives
Approaches
Investigate routing protocols for data
query and data collection for a highly
dynamic mobile sensor network.
• A Depth-First-Order (DFO) routing
protocol had been developed in the same
project. It is not robust: one node/edge
failure may stop the whole routing.
• The routing protocol for a mobile sensor
network must be robust, and time and
energy efficient.
Data Query A query request is delivered
in a top-down manner on the backbone.
When a node receives a request, it relays
the request at its pre-assigned timeslot.
Data Collection Data are collected in a
bottom-up manner on the backbone.
When a node receives the data from all
children, it adds its own data together and
transmits the data to its parent at its preassigned timeslot.

Collision-Free-Flooding (CFF) protocol:
• multi-routing: routes are self-formed
and use TDM to avoid collision.
• Time-energy efficient: routes are short
scheduled on the communication
backbone and each node needs to be
awake only for a short time.
• Robust: even node/link failures happen,
data query/collection still continue on
other routes.
