Energy-efficient Clustering Design for M2M Communications
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications have appeared as an advanced technology for next-generation communications and are undergoing rapid development. In this project, we investigate M2M communications in a wireless cellular network. In M2M communications, clustering is a technology for more efficient data gathering and higher network energy efficiency. We will analyze existing clustering designs in literature and propose two new clustering designs for M2M communications in cellular networks. Performance of the proposed designs will be evaluated thoroughly using both analytical and simulation tools across many aspects, including energy consumption, dead device ratio, residual energy, and network life. The results show that with simple static energy-efficient clustering operations, the network life can be extended by about 50%.
