AN ADAPTIVE CHANNEL HOPPING ALGORITHM FOR WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK WITH MESH STRUCTURE

Zhao Jindong/ Fan Baode/ Lu Yunhong/ Mu Chunxiao

According to EGTS proposal, an adaptive channel hopping algorithm that can be used in wireless mesh sensor networks was is designed in this paper. The nodes select proper channels independently and use them to communicate with their neighbors. Once a pair of nodes find their current channel has been deteriorated, they abandoned the current channel and enable the reserved channel, so that the reliability of the network is improved. The algorithm is compatible with the primitives and the frame str(..)

ULTRASONIC BLOOD FLOW SENSING USING DOPPLER VELOCIMETRY

Michelle Case/ Matthew Micheli/ Daniel Arroyo/ Jeremy Hillard/ Martin Kocanda

Ultrasonic blood flow sensing is a non-invasive method for measuring blood flow velocity. The objective of this work is to produce a low-cost ultrasonic blood flow instrument utilizing Doppler shifted signals and enhanced signal processing methods. The instrument transmits a single-frequency signal into circulatory tissues and receives a signal that is Doppler shifted in proportion to velocity. Subsequent processing techniques produce an audio feedback signal whereby the user “hears” the flow ch(..)

Sensor nodes may be deployed in hostile environments. An adversary may compromise the sensor nodes and inject false data into the network, which wastes scarce energy resources of the forwarding nodes. Existing schemes can effectively resist false data injection, but most of them do not consider the identifiers (IDs) attack, the en-route nodes check only the Message Authentication Codes (MACs) and do not verify the nodes identifiers (IDs) of the endorsing reports.

Condition Based Monitoring of a machine refers to the checking of various parameters and signatures of the machine and then predicting the machine’s current health status. The slight changes in the machine operating condition are carefully analyzed to know if the machine is having any fault. For monitoring the changes, we acquire acoustic data i.e. generated while machine is running.
