Abstract

Future generations of radio-based networks promise new timeliness for collaborative low-power sensing schemes in wireless sensor networks. Due to the hostile and inaccessible environment in which sensors are deployed, collect and transfer data in such networks is not an easy task. An effective data gathering can be improved by introducing unmanned aerial vehicles called drones, which act as mobile sinks and can autonomously fly over the network with the primary goal of collecting data from sensors. This paper presents a biologically inspired scheme of collaborative mobile sensing. The proposal has been designed in such a way that the coverage, the energy efficiency and a high network availability are maintained. Social foraging behaviors of the Escherichia coli bacteria modeled in the bacterial foraging optimization have been used to achieve these goals, especially the chemotaxis and the swarming features that allow bacteria to move. After a description, a formalization of the problem of mobile sensing is presented. Then, models that allow mobile sinks to move in a self-organized and self-adaptive way is proposed. In order to highlight the impact of mobility on energy consumption, delay, network coverage and successful amount of delivered data, intensive experiments have been done. Results demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.
