Introduction to the special issue on self-adaptive and self-organizing wireless networking systems
Michael Lemmon, Christian Poellabauer, Liqiang Zhang, Xiaobo Zhou
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/1552297.1552298

Agilla: A mobile agent middleware for self-adaptive wireless sensor networks
Chien-Liang Fok, Gruia-Catalin Roman, Chenyang Lu
Article No.: 16
DOI: 10.1145/1552297.1552299

This article presents Agilla, a mobile agent middleware designed to support self-adaptive applications in wireless sensor networks. Agilla provides a programming model in which applications consist of evolving communities of agents that share a...

Self-stabilizing robot formations over unreliable networks
Seth Gilbert, Nancy Lynch, Sayan Mitra, Tina Nolte
Article No.: 17
DOI: 10.1145/1552297.1552300

We describe how a set of mobile robots can arrange themselves on any specified curve on the plane in the presence of dynamic changes both in the underlying ad hoc network and in the set of participating robots. Our strategy is for the mobile...

On the convergence and stability of data-driven link estimation and routing in sensor networks
Hongwei Zhang, Lifeng Sang, Anish Arora
Article No.: 18
DOI: 10.1145/1552297.1552301

The wireless network community has become increasingly aware of the benefits of data-driven link estimation and routing as compared with beacon-based approaches, but the issue of Biased Link Sampling (BLS) estimation has not been well...

Self-organizing fault-tolerant topology control in large-scale three-dimensional wireless networks
Yu Wang, Lijuan Cao, Teresa A. Dahlberg, Fan Li, Xinghua Shi
Article No.: 19
DOI: 10.1145/1552297.1552302

Topology control protocol aims to efficiently adjust the network topology of wireless networks in a self-adaptive fashion to improve the performance and scalability of networks. This is especially essential to large-scale multihop wireless...
