Abstract

Ad-hoc networking allows portable equipment to establish link independent of a central infrastructure. This research work shows that there is no middle infrastructure and that the equipment can move randomly gives rise to various thoughtful of problems, such as routing and security. In this work the problem of routing is deal it. In this work pre-owned Ad-hoc routing protocols, such as AODV, DSR that propose solutions for routing within a mobile Ad-hoc network. Since there is an interest in link in the middle not only mobile equipment in an Ad-hoc network, but also among a mobile apparatus star in an Ad-hoc network and a fixed apparatus star in a fixed. The Ad-hoc routing protocols need to be modified. In this research work Ad-hoc routing protocol AODV and DSR is used and modified to examine the interconnection among a mobile ad hoc network and the Internet. The Network Simulator 2 (NS-2) is a popular and powerful simulation environment, and the number of NS-2 users has escalation greatly in recent years. Although it was basically created for wired networks, NS-2 has been continued to work with wireless networks, further wireless LANs, mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), and sensor networks.

Abstract

Present paper reports, synthesis of CuFe2O4 nanocomposite via chemical precipitation route and effect of poly ethylene glycol on their humidity sensing properties. The variations of resistance with and without PEG at different value of %RH of the sensing elements were investigated. The maximum average value of sensitivity was found 13.7 MΩ/%RH respectively over the entire range of relative humidity. Results are found to be reproducible after three months with ±5 % hysteresis. Sensing material synthesized through PEG has been characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM). XRD pattern revealed cubic crystal system. The average crystallite size of material was found to be 85.7 nm. SEM images show porous nature of sensing material with a number of active sites throughout the surface. The average size of pores of material was found to be 2µm.

Abstract

In wireless sensor network, one of the main objectives is how to improve its lifetime because the sensor nodes are generally energy-limited. Thus, providing ways to optimize energy Consumption, which ultimately increases the network lifetime, is of great importance. In this paper, we propose and evaluate an energy-efficient cooperative MIMO transmission scheme based on V-BLAST technique. In proposed scheme the clustering is done based on Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA) then V-BLAST technique based virtual MIMO transmission are used. This proposed protocol performance is analytically and experimentally is compared with previous presented works. From the analysis and the simulation results, it is seen that the proposed method can reduce the energy consumption of the network and prolong the sensor networks lifetime compared with existing techniques.
