Continuous Data Sensing and Collection in WSNs

Abstract: In this talk, we present a novel Decentralized Separate Coding (DSC) scheme, as a solution to solve the challenging problem of continuous data collection in wireless sensor networks with a mobile base station. DSC is linear coding with a specific randomized structure inspired by network coding on random bipartite graphs. The network codes of DSC are created in a decentralized way with low communication, storage and computation cost. By separately encoding a certain number of data segments in a combined segment and doing decoding free data replacement, DSC provides efficient storage method for the continuous data. We show that the proposed DSC achieves high success ratio of data collection. The comprehensive performance evaluation has been conducted through computer simulation. It is shown that DSC outperforms the existing scheme significantly.
