We present the design and deployment results for PosNet - a large-scale, long-duration sensor network that gathers summary position and status information from mobile nodes. The mobile nodes have a fixed-sized memory buffer to which position data is added at a constant rate, and from which data is downloaded at a non-constant rate. We have developed a novel algorithm that performs online summarization of position data within the buffer, where the algorithm naturally accommodates data input and output rate mismatch, and also provides a delay-tolerant approach to data transport. The algorithm has been extensively tested in a large-scale long-duration cattle monitoring and control application.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
