Research Projects

  • Project title: Sensor Networks for an Enhanced and Personalized Management and Use of Resources (SNEPMURe)
    Period: 02/2010–06/2013
    Role: Principle Investigator
    Funded by: The Research Council of Oman (TRC)
    Porject description:

    SNEPMURe stands for Sensor Networks for an Enhanced and Personalized Management and Use of Resources. It aims at elaborating mechanisms, protocols, and algorithms allowing static and mobile sensors to collaborate within the same Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). WSNs are promising tools in solving some of the most pressing challenges facing the world today, including the need for conserving energy, carrying out sustainable development, lowering the cost of healthcare, and improving governmental response to natural disasters. In the context of Oman, these emergent tools could be very beneficial in the monitoring of the existing rich and abundant natural resources.

    Basically, a WSN consists of hundreds of sophisticated small wireless devices (sensors) that could be deployed over a geographic space to cooperatively monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, motion, and pollutants. Since the energy and processing constrained sensors are frequently prone to failure, robbery, and destruction, the WSN commonly faces problems in managing its resources as well as the resources related to its application.

    By increasing the context awareness of sensors and allowing them to make a convenient use of data and environmental semantics, these small devices will leverage their interactions in order to adapt their processing with respect to current user requirements and the intended use of the WSN. The ultimate goal of this interaction is to enhance and personalize the management and use of the available resources.

    The contributions of SNEPMURe will include, but not limited to:
    - Personalize the WSN services with respect to the user requirements.
    - Personalize the WSN processing for better interactions between sensors.
    - Build a prototype that complies with the objectives of SNEPMURe.

  • Project title: Framework for Marine positioning engine
    Period: 10/2008–10/2009
    Role: Principle Investigator
    Funded by: Dhofar University
    Porject description:

    The project aims to survey the existing positioning technologies being used for marine applications. It also aims to study their effectiveness under several environmental conditions. Based on the results of the study, a framework for a new marine positioning engine will be proposed.

  • Project title: SWAN: Sensor Web Automated Network
    Period: 03/2007–09/2012
    Role: Co-investigator
    Funded by:
    Porject description:

    The projects aims to create an automated sensor web system for telemetry applications. Since a "deploy-and-ignore" approach does not work, especially in harsh and remote areas, sensors must be endowed with intelligent mechanisms to increase their context-awareness, set up and maintain safe communications pathways, and report the right data, at the right time, to the right sink, while preserving their limited energies.
