By Brijesh Kadri Mohandas, Amiya Nayak, Kshirasagar Naik, Nishith Goel
Issue Date:December 2008
pp. 1590-1594
A vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) is a network of intelligent vehicles that communicate with other vehicles in the network. The main objective of VANET is to provide comfort and safety for passengers. In addition, various transaction based services, such ...
Gradient Boundary Detection for Time Series Snapshot Construction in Sensor Networks
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems
By Jie Lian, Lei Chen, Kshirasagar Naik, Yunhao Liu, Gordon B. Agnew
Issue Date:October 2007
pp. 1462-1475
In many applications of sensor networks, the sink needs to keep track of the history of sensed data of a monitored region for scientific analysis or supporting historical queries. We call these historical data as a time series of value distributions, or sn...
Virtual Surrounding Face Geocasting with Guaranteed Message Delivery for Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks
Found in: Network Protocols, IEEE International Conference on
By Jie Lian, Kshirasagar Naik, Yunhao Liu, Lei Chen
Issue Date:November 2006
pp. 198-207
Geocasting in wireless sensor networks and ad hoc networks is the delivery of a message from a source to all the nodes in a given geographical region. The objectives of a geocasting protocol are two-folds: guaranteed message delivery and low transmission c...
