(ESM-WSNs 2014)

In Conjunction with the 14th IEEE International Conference on

Computer and Information Technology (CIT 2014)

With the rapid development of wireless communication technologies, electromagnetic spectrum resources become increasingly scarce. This inspires us to pursue some efficient methods to deal with this problem such as eletromagnetic spectrum monitoring based on wireless sensor networks(WSNs). Electromagnetic spectrum monitoring based on WSNs could provide high detection accuracy through cooperative detection. We also could monitor spectrum resources for a long time and analyze the monitoring data to reuse the idle spectrum resources. Furthermore, we could locate and track the illegal radio source accurately in the WSNs coverage area.

Motivated by the advantages above, further studies of electromagnetic spectrum monitoring based on WSNs are necessary. To guarantee the networks running normally,network architecture of WSNs is essential. Signal enhancement and distributed cooperative detection technologies can be used to improve the accuracy of signal detection. In some special scenarios, we should take accurate distributed signal localization algorithms into account when we need to locate the illegal radio source. Spectrum scene description can be intuitive and comprehensive to help us understand the electromagnetic spectrum environment of the whole band. Spectrum big data computing could quickly and efficiently process the volume and various spectrum data transmitted from nodes in the distributed sensor networks. Pervasive computing could be used to compute the large data in the WSNs, so research on pervasive computing is necessary. Embedded networks is the fundamental of pervasive computing, hence we need to design a well embedded network for pervasive computing.Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless sensor networks for spectrum monitoring
  • Signal detection and signal enhancement technology
  • Cooperative spectrum sensing and data transmission
  • Electronic compatibility for spectrum sensing and data transmission
  • Distributed signal localization and tracking
  • Software defined radio for spectrum scene description
  • Spectrum Data Centers and Spectrum Big Data Computing
  • Embedded Networks and Pervasive Computing in wireless sensor network
