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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
