Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents a new simulation tool for performance analysis of wireless sensor networks (WSN) deployed on farm animals. The mobility and herding patterns from real herds are fed into statistical models to give rise to network simulation that is based on accurate herd behavior. The simulation results are used in evaluation of novel protocol ideas customized to the needs of farm monitoring.
