    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.3, pp. 3585-3629, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.050596

    Abstract Numerous wireless networks have emerged that can be used for short communication ranges where the infrastructure-based networks may fail because of their installation and cost. One of them is a sensor network with embedded sensors working as the primary nodes, termed Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), in which numerous sensors are connected to at least one Base Station (BS). These sensors gather information from the environment and transmit it to a BS or gathering location. WSNs have several challenges, including throughput, energy usage, and network lifetime concerns. Different strategies have been applied to get over these… More >

    Abstract Utilizing granular computing to enhance artificial neural network architecture, a new type of network emerges—the granular neural network (GNN). GNNs offer distinct advantages over their traditional counterparts: The ability to process both numerical and granular data, leading to improved interpretability. This paper proposes a novel design method for constructing GNNs, drawing inspiration from existing interval-valued neural networks built upon NNNs. However, unlike the proposed algorithm in this work, which employs interval values or triangular fuzzy numbers for connections, existing methods rely on a pre-defined numerical network. This new method utilizes a uniform distribution of information More >
