- ItemBA: Game Theoretical Approach for Energy-Delay Balancing in Distributed Duty-Cycled MAC Protocols of Wireless Networks(ACM, 2014-07-14) Doudou, Messaoud; M. Barcelo-Ordinas, Jose; Djenouri, Djamel; Garcia-Vidal, Jorge; Badache, Nadjib
Show more Optimizing energy consumption and end-to-end (e2e) packet delay in energy constrained distributed wireless networks is a conflicting multi-objective optimization problem. This paper investigates this trade-off from a game-theoretic perspective, where the two optimization objectives are considered as virtual game players that attempt to optimize their utility values. The cost model of each player is mapped through a generalized optimization framework onto protocol specific MAC parameters. A cooperative game is then defined, in which the Nash Bargaining solution assures the balance between energy consumption and e2e packet delay. For illustration, this formulation is applied to three state-of-the-art wireless sensor network MAC protocols; X-MAC, DMAC, and LMAC as representatives of preamble sampling, slotted contention-based, and frame-based MAC categories, respectively. The paper shows the effectiveness of such framework in optimizing protocol parameters for achieving a fair energy-delay performance trade-off, under the application requirements in terms of initial energy budget and maximum e2e packet delay. The proposed framework is scalable with the increase in the number of nodes, as the players represent the optimization metrics instead of nodes.Show more - ItemEnergy-Delay Constrained Minimal Relay Placement in Low Duty-Cycled Sensor Networks Under Anycast Forwarding(CERIST, 2016-06) Doudou, Messaoud; M. Barcelo-Ordinas, Jose; Garcia-Vidal, Jorge
Show more A constrained relay placement problem satisfying application requirements in terms of network lifetime and end-to-end (e2e) delay in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is investigated in this paper. The network and the traffic are adequately modeled considering uniform node deployment and low data rate periodic traffic generation. An optimization problem is defined to obtain the minimum number of relays to be deployed, at each level of the network, in order to fulfil network duty-cycle and e2e delay constraints under anycast forwarding based on the wake-up period parameter of the duty-cycle MAC protocol. Since the optimization problem is non-convex, an alternative and efficient algorithm for relay node placement called EDC-RP (Energy-Delay Constrained Relay Placement) is introduced. The comparison of the proposed node deployment strategy with state-of-the-art relay placement methods demonstrates the gain of the heuristic in terms of deployment cost (number of relays) over other solutions while fulfilling the application constraints.Show more - ItemEnergy-Delay Constrained Minimal Relay Placement in Low Duty-Cycled Sensor Networks Under Anycast Forwarding(IEEE, 2016-09-04) Doudou, Messaoud; M.

Show more Optimizing energy consumption and end-to-end (e2e) packet delay in energy-constrained, delay-sensitive wireless sensor networks is a conflicting multi-objective optimization problem. We investigate the problem from a game theory perspective, where the two optimization objectives are considered as game players. The cost model of each player is mapped through a generalized optimization framework onto protocol specific MAC parameters. From the optimization framework, a game is first defined by the Nash Bargaining Solution (NBS) to assure energy-consumption and e2e delay balancing. Secondly, the Kalai-Smorodinsky Bargaining Solution (KSBS) is used to find equal proportion of gain between players. Both methods offer a bargaining solution to the duty-cycle MAC protocol under different axioms. As a result, given the two performance requirements, i.e., the maximum latency tolerated by the application and the initial energy budget of nodes, the proposed framework allows to set tunable system parameters to reach a fair equilibrium point which dually minimizes the system latency and energy consumption. For illustration, this formulation is applied to six state-of-the-art Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) MAC protocols; B-MAC, X-MAC, RI-MAC, SMAC, DMAC, and LMAC. The paper shows the effectiveness and scalability of such framework in optimizing protocol parameters that achieve a fair energy-delay performance trade-off under the application requirements.Show more - ItemPerformance Optimization of Duty-Cycled MAC in Delay-Energy Constrained Sensor Network Under Uniform and Non-Uniform Traffic Generation(interscience.wiley, 2016) Doudou, Messaoud; M.

Show more Duty-Cycle at the MAC layer plays a key role in energy savings and network lifetime extension. It consists in putting a node’s radio in the sleep state as soon as it has no communication activity. Traditional WSN MAC protocols are designed with short duty cycles at the cost of long delays. Careful design is required for joint energy-delay constrained applications, where the optimal parameters should be thoroughly derived. The present paper deals with this issue and mathematically derives optimal values of key MAC parameters under low data rate applications for three well known duty-cycled MAC protocols, WiseMAC, SCP-MAC, and LMAC as representatives of three MAC protocol categories, respectively preamble-sampling, slotted contention-based and frame-based. The analysis provides also the optimum traffic sampling rate that guarantees the minimum energy consumption. It shows the role of these parameters in achieving the targeted e2e (end-to-end) delay constraints under network models with uniform traffic generation, for ring and grid topologies. As a second contribution, the model is extended to non-uniform traffic scenarios, where a certain percentage of deployed nodes are relays whose role is to balance traffic forwarding and save the overall network energy. The results reveal that different optimal internal MAC parameters and traffic generation rates can be found for different configurations of relay nodes deployment, which achieve minimal network energy consumption while satisfying the application required e2e delay thresholdShow more
