Energy-aware Routing in the Internet of Things using Stackelberg Games

Prof. Anastasios A. Economides
Thursday, December 18, 2014 - 15:30


In the Internet of Things various traffic streams generated by sensors will trade with intermediate relay nodes to forward their traffic to the destination. Since, these relay nodes receive compensation for forwarding the traffic, they will compete among themselves for doing this. This talk will first present an introduction to the Internet of Things and to the Routing problem. Then it will formulate and solve the problem as a Stackelberg game. Finally, it will present simulation results for various scenarios, and discuss open research issues.
