摘要© 1979-2012 IEEE. The six articles in this special section focus on the concept of immient communications for smart communities. While walking on the streets, we can identify hundreds of devices connected to the network in many ways, and this is not the end. As per many recent statistics and predictions, we will have billions of devices connected to the Internet and we will be able to reshape the entire living standards and styles of cities through such connectivity. In such a connected environment, one can easily expect a large amount of data to be generated, collected, and analyzed to provide a variety of services, including smart logistics, health care, agricultural reforming, and Smart Grid, with an ultimate goal of improving the consumer's experience. Collectively, we name these services as a step toward Smart Communities, and in this special section, these articles propose very interesting solutions and architectures for the futuristic smarter communities and cities.

摘要Coverage is a significant performance indicator of wireless sensor networks. Data redundancy in k-coverage raises a set of issues including network congestion, coverage reduction, energy inefficiency, among others. To address these issues, this paper proposes a novel algorithm called complex alliance strategy with multi-objective optimization of coverage (CASMOC) which could improve node coverage effectively. This paper also gives the proportional relationship of the energy conversion function between the working node and its neighbors, and applies this relationship in scheduling low energy mobile nodes, thus achieving energy balance of the whole network, and optimizing network resources. The extensive simulation results demonstrate that CASMOC could not only improve the quality of network coverage, but also mitigate rapid node energy consumption effectively, thereby extending the life cycle of the network significantly. © 2016 Springer Science+Business Media New York关键词Algorithms , Complex networks , Energy conversion , Energy utilization , Life cycle , Low power electronics , Multiobjective optimization , Sensor nodes , Complex alliance , Conversion function , Extensive simulations , K-coverage , Multi objective , Network lifetime , Performance indicators , Proportional relationships
