Topic: “Sensitivity Analysis of Wireless Sensor Networks”

Presenter: Ms. Chaonan Wang, ECE Ph.D. Student, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth

Advisor: Dr. Liudong Xing

The component sensitivity analysis of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) under infrastructure communication paradigm will be presented in this talk. The binary decision diagram (BDD)-based algorithms are applied to evaluate and compare three different importance measures for sensitivity analysis in WSNs: structural importance measure, Birnbaum’s measure, and criticality importance measure. The impact of node degree, choice of destination nodes, data delivery model used, as well as mission time on the sensitivity analysis will be discussed.

Chaonan Wang received the B.E. degree in electric power and automatic engineering from Shanghai University of Electric Power, Shanghai, China, in 2006 and the M.S. degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2009. She is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Her current research interests include reliability analysis and performance evaluation of complex systems and networks.

The seminar is open to the public free of charge.
