Particle Swarm Optimization and harmony search based clustering and routing in Wireless Sensor Networks
Veena Anand, Sudhakar Pandey
Pages: 1252 - 1262
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has the disadvantage of limited and non-rechargeable energy resource in WSN creates a challenge and led to development of various clustering and routing algorithms. The paper proposes an approach for improving network lifetime by using Particle swarm optimization based...

Many endogenous and external components may affect the physiological, mental and behavioral states in humans. Monitoring tools are required to evaluate biomarkers, identify biological events, and predict their outcomes. Being one of the valuable indicators, brain biomarkers derived from temporal or spectral...

Gender violence is one of the most serious and widespread problems in our society. In dangerous cases, the use of special devices for GPS tracing is recommended in some countries. However, these devices are used only in extreme cases and have many drawbacks. This work describes a new system to combat...
