About the book
Wireless sensor networks consist of tiny sensors which are capable of sensing, computation and communication. Due to the advancements in semiconductor, networking and material science technologies it is now possible to deploy wireless sensor networks on a large scale. The advancement in these technologies has enabled a wide scale deployment by not only lowering the deployment and maintenance cost of the networks but also by increasing the life of the network and by making them more rugged. Now wireless sensor networks are been deployed and used across various sectors for multiple applications. At the same time, we are encountering newer problems in modeling of wireless sensor networks, hardware and software development and deployment, system reliability, analytics, security and performance.
The book is intended to be a collection of solutions addressing various challenges such as network modeling, security, hardware and software development, protocol development etc. being faced by wireless sensor networks and also a collection of applications such as military sensing, physical security, air traffic control, traffic surveillance, video surveillance, industrial and manufacturing automation, distributed robotics, weather sensing, environment monitoring, building and structure monitoring, energy conservation, cattle industry etc where wireless sensor networks are being deployed. The book also intends to look at the adaption of wireless sensor networks in newer technology domains such as IOT.
