Wireless sensor and robot networks : from topology control to communication aspects
By Nathalie Mitton, David Simplot-Ryl.
TJ211.W798, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
Wireless sensor networks have gained much attention these last years thanks to the great set of applications that accelerated the technological advances. Such networks have been widely investigated and many books and articles have been published about the new challenges they pose and how to address them. One of these challenges is node mobility: sensors could be moved unexpectedly if deployed in an uncontrolled environment or hold by moving object/animals. Beyond all this, a new dimension arises when this mobility is controlled, i.e. if these sensors are embedded in robots. These robots cohabit with sensors and cooperate together to perform a given task collectively by presenting hardware constraints: they still rely on batteries; they communicate through short radio links and have limited capacities.
In this book, we propose to review new challenges brought about by controlled mobility for different goals and how they are addressed in the literature in wireless sensor and Robot networks, ranging from deployment to communications. [As taken from Amazon]

Bluetooth and wireless local area networks : security guides
Jenkins, Rene I.
TK5103.3.B658, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
Bluetooth is an open standard for short-range radio frequency communication. Bluetooth technology is used primarily to establish wireless personal area networks (WPANs), and it has been integrated into many types of business and consumer devices. This book provides information on the security capabilities of both Bluetooth technologies and wireless local networks and gives recommendations to organizations on securing them effectively.

Wireless networking : understanding internetworking challenges
By Burbank, Jack L.
TK5105.5.B946, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
This book focuses on providing a detailed and practical explanation of key existing and emerging wireless networking technologies and trends, while minimizing the amount of theoretical background information. The book also goes beyond simply presenting what the technology is, but also examines why the technology is the way it is, the history of its development, standardization, and deployment. The book also describes how each technology is used, what problems it was designed to solve, what problems it was not designed to solve., how it relates to other technologies in the marketplace, and internetworking challenges faced withing the context of the Internet, as well as providing deployment trends and standardization trends. Finally, this book decomposes evolving wireless technologies to identify key technical and usage trends in order to discuss the likely characteristics of future wireless networks.

New title for Communication and Information Engineering

Adaptive wireless communications : MIMO channels and networks
By Bliss, Daniel W.
TK5103.4836.B649, Lee Wee Nam Library

Synopsis:
Adopting a balanced mix of theory, algorithms and practical design issues, this comprehensive volume explores cutting-edge applications in adaptive wireless communications and the implications these techniques have for future wireless network performance. Presenting practical concerns in the context of different strands from information theory, parameter estimation theory, array processing and wireless communication, the authors present a complete picture of the field. Topics covered include advanced multiple-antenna adaptive processing, ad hoc networking, MIMO, MAC protocols, space-time coding, cellular networks and cognitive radio, with the significance and effects of both internal and external interference a recurrent theme throughout.
