To increase the efficiency of Underwater Network Using Vector Based Technique


  • Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar -144411,Punjab, India


For the improvement in underwater acoustic sensor networks, vector based technique is used to increase the efficiency of network and reduce the chances of link failure. It is also improve robustness and scalability of the network. Underwater acoustic are used sensor nodes and autonomous vehicles to communicate from one place to another under the ocean and also used a surface station. They create a link to on-shore control center. UANs are different from terrestrial networks. These are used in different fields like military and commercial fields. Underwater networks are connected with number of vehicles and sensors which are used to monitor the underwater activities. This paper evaluates the research problems of underwater acoustic networks like energy consumption and different layers are used to solve the issues which occur in UANs.
