  1. Wireless sensor networks

    New York : Nova Science Publishers, [2011]

    A wireless sensor network (WSN) consists of spatially distributed autonomous sensors to co-operatively monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, motion or pollutants. The development of wireless sensor networks was motivated by military applications such as battlefield surveillance. They are now used in many industrial and civilian application areas, including industrial process monitoring and control, machine health monitoring, environment and habitat monitoring, healthcare applications, home automation, and traffic control. This book gathers and presents topical research data from around the globe in the field of wireless sensor networks.

    Chichester, West Sussex, U.K. : John Wiley & Sons, ©2010.

    This book presents an in-depth study on the recent advances in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The authors describe the existing WSN applications and discuss the research efforts being undertaken in this field. Theoretical analysis and factors influencing protocol design are also highlighted. The authors explore state-of-the-art protocols for WSN protocol stack in transport, routing, data link, and physical layers. Moreover, the synchronization and localization problems in WSNs are investigated along with existing solutions. Furthermore, cross-layer solutions are described. Finally, developing areas of WSNs including sensor-actor networks, multimedia sensor networks, and WSN applications in underwater and underground environments are explored.This book presents an in-depth study on the recent advances in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs).

  3. Wireless sensor networks [electronic resource] : a networking perspective

    Piscataway, NJ : IEEE ; Hoboken, N.J. : Wiley, c2009.

    Networking is one of the most important aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). There are a variety of networking issues that must be addressed in order to realize the vision of WSNs, such as network architecture, medium access control, routing and data dissemination, topology control, node clustering, time synchronization, node localization, and fault tolerance. This book introduces to researchers, students, and practitioners the fundamental concepts, major issues, and state-of-the-art solutions in the networking wireless sensors.
