Abstract: Now-a-days Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) plays predominant role in the cloud communication domain. The main parts of these types of systems are Wireless Sensor Networks, Cloud and communication networks. The data to be disseminated from multiple sources to the destination base station or sink is having vital significance. There are many problems with which data can be conveyed up to the sink. The sink is connected to cloud via communication network. The congestion, reliability, delay, fairness, etc. are of main concern. These can be treated as Quality of Service parameters that govern the performance of the CPS. Above all the Energy s consumption is the main constrain for WSN node. It is very difficult to obtain good QoS by keeping energy consumption low. Even if response of one of QoS parameter will depends on the many other QoS parameters. We have to take care of all QoS parameters to improve the performance of the wireless sensor networks. This Quality of Services may improve the application base of the CPS. With the QoS parameters the data dissemination along with energy optimization is get affected. We have to check the performance of the WSN against the QoS metrics for different data inputs. This may contain the periodic- non periodic data, event based data, transient or busty data. This may lead to new researcher to verify their results and excel their research work accordingly.

Abstract: Digital Communication techniques are widely used over the last few decades for transmission of voice, video and data. Error detecting and correcting codes (Channel codes) are employed in such systems to achieve reliable transmission of digital data. Such codes add controlled redundant information (parity bits) to the transmitted message for error recovery at the receiving end. Shannon’s legendary “Channel capacity theorem” (1948) set milestones in theoretical limits on communication in presence of noise which, in turn, resulted in the evolution of Channel coding. Over the last six decades, many researchers have proposed and investigated numerous channel codes to achieve higher coding gains. Turbo codes (Berrou, et. al. 1993) are modern near Shannonian limit codes which are used in modern wireless communication system standards. Recently, a class of low complexity hybrid turbo codes called as Low Complexity Hybrid Turbo codes (LCHTC) and Improved Low complexity Hybrid Turbo Codes (ILCHTC) (Bhise and Vyavahare 2010)are being proposed which have equivalent performance but lower complexity than that of Turbo codes. The tutorial aims to cover a panoramic view of various codes with emphasis on recent developments in the area of Turbo Codes, Modified Turbo Codes and their variants with their salient features.

Outline of tutorial Contents:

In a disaster affected site the existing mobile infrastructures are completely damaged or broken. Hence, establishment of an alternative communication system in this situation remains the primary need. The volunteers need to communicate with themselves wirelessly to collect situational data and transmit them to the base station. Those data might be helpful for situation analysis and subsequently resource allocation to the victims. Network architecture based on opportunistic Delay Tolerant Network (DTN) is best applicable for post disaster scenarios due to frequent network partitioning and unpredictable network delay in such situations. Hence, there is a need to device novel routing protocols for DTN that can handle such situations and successfully transfer packets to the destinations whenever network connection is available. The objective of such algorithms would be to reduce message delivery latency and to improve message delivery ratio by incurring a small overhead in the system.

Small sized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) play major roles in collecting situational data from different sites on the fly and deposit them to the base station. In a post disaster situation it can be used for search and rescue, damage assessment and other emergency situations. It is necessary to design an efficient dynamic path planning technique for effective damage assessment. The objective of such algorithm would be to cover maximum number of sites within available flight time of the UAV. To design such algorithm different environment parameters like wind speed, wind direction, and temperature along with different physical parameters of the UAV like battery level and flight duration has to be considered. The performance of the designed algorithm has been analysed in a simulated environment as well as in a real test bed varying the above mentioned parameters.
