Design and Implementation of Cricket-based Location Tracking System
In this paper, we present a novel approach to location
system under indoor environment. The key idea of our work is
accurate distance estimation with cricket-based location system using
A* algorithm. We also use magnetic sensor for detecting obstacles in
indoor environment. Finally, we suggest how this system can be used
in various applications such as asset tracking and monitoring.

A Lifetime-Guaranteed Routing Scheme in Wireless Sensor Networks
In this paper, we propose a routing scheme that guarantees
the residual lifetime of wireless sensor networks where each
sensor node operates with a limited budget of battery energy. The
scheme maximizes the communications QoS while sustaining the
residual battery lifetime of the network for a specified duration.
Communication paths of wireless nodes are translated into a directed
acyclic graph(DAG) and the maximum-flow algorithm is applied to
the graph. The found maximum flow are assigned to sender nodes, so
as to maximize their communication QoS. Based on assigned flows,
the scheme determines the routing path and the transmission rate of
data packet so that any sensor node on the path would not exhaust
its battery energy before a specified duration.
