Mitigation Mechanisms Against the DAO Attack on the Routing Protocol for Low Power and Lossy Networks (RPL)

Journal Article
Wadhaj, I., Ghaleb, B., Thomson, C., Al-Dubai, A., & Buchanen, B. (2020)
Mitigation Mechanisms Against the DAO Attack on the Routing Protocol for Low Power and Lossy Networks (RPL). IEEE Access, 8, 43665-43675. https://doi.org/10.1109/ACCESS.2020.2977476
Destination Advertisement Objects (DAOs) are sent upward by RPL nodes toward the DODAG root, to build the downward routing paths carrying traffic from the root to its associat...

A New Mobility Aware Duty Cycling and Dynamic Preambling Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Network

Conference Proceeding
Thomson, C., Wadhaj, I., Al-Dubai, A., & Tan, Z. (in press)
A New Mobility Aware Duty Cycling and Dynamic Preambling Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Network
The issue of energy holes, or hotspots, in wireless sensor networks is well referenced. As is the proposed mobilisa-tion of the sink node in order to combat this. However, as ...

Mobility Aware Duty Cycling Algorithm (MADCAL) in Wireless Sensor Network with Mobile Sink Node

Conference Proceeding
Thomson, C., Wadhaj, I., Tan, Z., & Al-Dubai, A. (2019)
Mobility Aware Duty Cycling Algorithm (MADCAL) in Wireless Sensor Network with Mobile Sink Node. In 2019 IEEE International Conference on Smart Internet of Things (SmartIoT)https://doi.org/10.1109/SmartIoT.2019.00037
In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) the use of Mobile Sink Nodes (MSNs) has been proposed in order to negate the ”hotspot” issue. This where nodes closest to the sink node shal...

Mobility Aware Duty Cycling Algorithm (MADCAL) A Dynamic Communication Threshold for Mobile Sink in Wireless Sensor Network

Journal Article
Thomson, C., Wadhaj, I., Tan, Z., & Al-Dubai, A. (2019)
Mobility Aware Duty Cycling Algorithm (MADCAL) A Dynamic Communication Threshold for Mobile Sink in Wireless Sensor Network. Sensors, 19(22), https://doi.org/10.3390/s19224930
The hotspot issue in wireless sensor networks, with nodes nearest the sink node losing energy fastest and degrading network lifetime, is a well referenced problem. Mobile sink...

Performance Investigation of RPL Routing in Pipeline Monitoring WSNs

Conference Proceeding
Wadhaj, I., Gharebi, W., Al-Dubai, A., & Thomson, C. (2018)
Performance Investigation of RPL Routing in Pipeline Monitoring WSNs. In 20th {IEEE} International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications; 16th {IEEE} International Conference on Smart City; 4th {IEEE} International Conference on Data Science and Systems, HPCC/SmartCity/DSS 2018https://doi.org/10.1109/HPCC/SmartCity/DSS.2018.00178
The adoption of WSN and IEEE 802.15.4 standard for the linear WSN networks were assumed. The interconnection of WSNs with the Internet is possible by assigning IPv6 addresses ...

Performance evaluation of RPL metrics in environments with strained transmission ranges. In 2016 IEEE/ACS 13th International Conference of Computer Systems and Applications (AICCSA)https://doi.org/10.1109/aiccsa.2016.7945687
An examination of existing studies in the area of Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL) implementation in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) reveals a consisten...

Cooja Simulator Manual

Report
Thomson, C., Romdhani, I., Al-Dubai, A., Qasem, M., Ghaleb, B., & Wadhaj, I. (2016)
Cooja Simulator Manual. Edinburgh: Edinburgh Napier University
While Cooja has been proven to be an ideal tool for the simulation of RPL in WSNs, there are challenges involved in its use, particularly in regard to a lack of documentation....
