The path-loss exponent (PLE) is a key parameter in wireless propagation channels. Therefore, obtaining the knowledge of the PLE is rather significant for assisting wireless communications and networking to achieve a better performance. Most existing methods for estimating the PLE not only require nodes with known locations but also assume an omni-directional PLE. However, the location information might be unavailable or unreliable and, in practice, the PLE might change with the direction.

The transformation of traditional energy networks to smart grids can assist in revolutionizing the energy industry
in terms of reliability, performance and manageability. However, increased connectivity of power grid assets for bidirectional communications presents severe security vulnerabilities. In this paper, we investigate Chi-square detector and cosine similarity matching approaches for attack detection in smart grids where Kalman filter estimation is used to measure any deviation from actual measurements. The cosine similarity matching approach is

In this paper, we evaluate the energy efficiency of opportunistic channel access when used in wireless home networking applications. The main idea is to prioritize the access rights of the wireless home applications sharing a given IEEE 802.11 channel. A low priority network can opportunistically access the channel during the inactive periods of a high priority network.
