Development of a New Routing Protocol by using Multi-objective and Swarm Intelligent Approaches for Wireless Sensor Network on Maritime Environment Monitoring

December 1, 2017

This is the abstract for my International Research Collaboration and Scientific Publication with two French Institutions as international collaborators.

As the largest archipelago country in the world, Indonesia has great potential to be the world’s maritime axis. The maritime axis is a strategic idea which embodied to ensure inter-island connectivity, shipping and fishery industries development, marine transportation improvement and focus on maritime security. So maritime monitoring is crucial in order to prevent sea pollution, fish theft, sovereignty offenses, territorial disputes, and piracy. Nowadays, maritime monitoring has been a very interesting issue over the last decade. With the rapid advancement of technology and the Internet, sensor network technology has become very important in monitoring the aquatic environment. Maritime responsibilities, such as vigilance and patrolling, wildlife  monitoring, and aqua-culture inspection, mostly require large operational teams and expensive equipment. In this research proposal, we will study a scalable robotics system based on swarm intelligence. We take advantage of bio-inspired artificial evolution approaches in order to synthesize scalable and robust collective behaviors for the nodes or the drones. In this research proposal, we will study and propose a system which composed of potentially hundreds sensor nodes or thousands of autonomous drones. Each drone could equipped with a number of different sensors. The use of numerous nodes or drones introduces redundancy in the system, which  decreases the impact of hardware declines and has the potential to improve operational efficiency by admitting a wider area to be covered simultaneously. On the other hand, automating such missions greatly minimizes the maintenance cost while increasing scalability and availability. The behaviors of nodes or drones are then combined hierarchically, allowing the overall behavior for a particular mission to be quickly configured and tested in simulation. The goals of this research is to developing a new mechanism which enable swarm intelligence of nodes or drones to operate as a robust wireless sensor network (WSN) for maritime environment monitoring.

Tinggal di negara Perancis tidak pernah terpintas sedikit pun dalam ‘dreams book‘ saya. Sewaktu saya masih duduk dibangku sekolah menengah pertama (SMP) di bilangan Jakarta Pusat, pertama kalinya terbesit dalam benak pikiran saya “oh, enak sekali yah, bisa sekolah dan bekerja di Jerman atau di luar negeri”. Ketika itu ada salah seorang alumni SMP yang datang dan berbagi pengalaman tentang sekolah di Jerman. Sehingga mulai muncul sebuah titik kecil dan mulai saya tulis dalam “dreams book” saya, suatu hari nanti saya ingin sekolah di Jerman.    (more…)

Energy Consumption Analysis of AODV-UI Hybrid Routing Protocol under Various Mobility Models

December 26, 2011

This is our first draft joint research paper that we submitted to Networking 2012, The International Conference on Networking. This joint research is involved 2 universities, Universitas Indonesia and Universite de Haute Alsace-France. We hope that this paper could represent both universities in the conference.

Abstract – Mobile ad hoc networks (Manets) are characterized by mobile with portable and limited power sources. For more than one decade, Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol becomes attention and research focus on MANET widely. A lot of protocols proposed to improve and optimize AODV performance. Yet, many of those do not consider the needs of node accessing Internet via infrastructure network. In this paper, we proposed a optimize hybrid routing protocol based on AODV routing protocol, called AODV-UI. Our proposed protocol combines two mechanism such as gateway mode and reverse route mechanism with the aim to improve the performance of the hybrid protocol. We performed some evaluation of energy consumption calculation in our proposed hybrid protocol under various mobility models. We used random waypoint mobility models and reference point group mobility models with different speed and different number of source node to evaluate our protocol. The simulation result shows that our proposed protocol performance is lower in terms of energy consumption for random waypoint movement compare to the reference point group mobility model.

Keywords: Energy, gateway mode, mobility model, reverse route mechanism.

Visit to UHA-Colmar, France

November 9, 2011

These are some pictures of my journey when we had visiting  our research partner at Universite de Haute-Alsace (UHA) at Colmar, France on 8-9 Nov 2011.

Just sharing a little story about Colmar, France. Colmar is a small town in highland of east France. It’s about 500 KM from Paris, or 3.5 hours by TGV. When I was there, the temperature was around 15 Celcius at day and 8 Celcius at night. Because this November is winter time in Europe.

The meeting was attended by Prof Bagio Budiradjo (UI), Prof Pascal Lorenz (UHA), Dr. Abdulhafids (UHA), Harris Simaremare (Co-tutelle student) and me. We also visited labs & facilities campus at UHA.

When we visited labs, we accompanied by Mr. Amin (PhD Student UHA). He is very helpful.
