Wireless networking covers a variety of topics involving many challenges. The main concern of clustering approaches for mobile wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is to prolong the battery life of the individual sensors and the network lifetime. For a successful clustering approach the need of a powerful mechanism to safely elect a cluster head remains a challenging task in many research works that take into account the mobility of the network. In A Distributed and Safe Weighted Clustering Algorithm for Mobile Wireless Sensor Networks, the authors use an approach based on the computing of the weight of each node in the network, which one of the proposed techniques to deal with this problem. They present a virtual laboratory platform (VLP) baptized mercury allowing students and researchers to make practical work (PW) on different aspects of mobile wireless sensor networks. The authors’ choice of WSNs is motivated mainly by the use of real experiments needed in most college courses on WSNs. These experiments require an expensive investment and a lot of nodes in the classroom. The platform presented here aims at showing the feasibility, the flexibility, and the reduced cost of such a realization. The authors demonstrate the performance of the proposed algorithms that contribute to the familiarization of the learners in the field of WSNs.

The book will be a valuable resource for students in networking studies as well as for faculty and researchers in this area.
