Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In wireless communication, localization, and sensing, energy awareness is becoming more and more important to enable sustainable long-term sustainable solutions. Low-power systems leverage innovation on sensor and actuator enhancements, improved communication protocols, and energy aware localization algorithms. In this issue, we welcome novel research concepts and experiments related to low-power sensors and wireless communication and localization.

Emergency communications need to meet the developing demand of equipment and the complex scenarios of network in public safety networks (PSNs). Heterogeneous Cloud Radio Access Network (H-CRAN), an important technology of the 5th generation wireless systems (5G), plays an important role in PSN. H-CRAN has the features of resource sharing and centralized allocation which can make up for resource shortage in emergency communications. Therefore, an emergency communications strategy based on Device-to-device (D2D) multicast is proposed to make PSN more flexible and rapid. Nearby users can communicate directly without a base station through D2D. This strategy may guarantee high speed data transmission and stable continuous real-time communications. It is divided into three steps. Firstly, according to the distance between users, the alternative cluster head is divided. Secondly, two kinds of cluster head user selection schemes are developed. One is based on terminal power and the other is based on the number of extended users. Last but not least, the Hungarian Algorithm based on throughput-aware is used to channel multiplexing. The numerical results show that the proposed scheme can effectively extend the coverage of PSN and optimize the utilization of resources. Full article
