e-Sampling: Event-Sensitive Autonomous Adaptive Sensing and Low-Cost Monitoring in Networked Sensing Systems
Md Zakirul Alam Bhuiyan, Jie Wu, Guojun Wang, Tian Wang, Mohammad Mehedi Hassan
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2994150

Sampling rate adaptation is a critical issue in many resource-constrained networked systems, including Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Existing algorithms are primarily employed to detect events such as objects or physical changes at a high, low,...

Topology Management-Based Distributed Camera Actuation in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Goutam Mali, Sudip Misra
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/3014430

Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs) involving camera and Scalar Sensor (SS) nodes provide precise information of events occurring in the monitored region by transmitting video packets. In WMSNs, it is necessary to provide coverage of...

Tight Analysis of a Collisionless Robot Gathering Algorithm
Gokarna Sharma, Costas Busch, Supratik Mukhopadhyay, Charles Malveaux
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/3056460

We consider the fundamental problem of gathering a set of n robots in the Euclidean plane that have a physical extent and hence cannot share their positions with other robots. The objective is to determine a minimum time schedule to...

Decentralised Detection of Emergence in Complex Adaptive Systems
Eamonn O'toole, Vivek Nallur, Siobhán Clarke
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/3019597

This article describes Decentralised Emergence Detection (DETect), a novel distributed algorithm that enables agents to collaboratively detect emergent events in Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS). Non-deterministic interactions between agents in CAS...
