Wireless communication technologies continue to undergo rapid advancement. In recent years, there has been a steep growth in research in the area of wireless sensor networks (WSNs).

In WSNs, communication takes place with the help of spatially distributed, autonomous sensor nodes equipped to sense specific information. WSNs can be found in a variety of both military and civilian applications worldwide. Examples include detecting enemy intrusion on the battlefield, object tracking, habitat monitoring, patient monitoring and fire detection. Sensor networks are emerging as an attractive technology with great promise for the future. However, challenges remain to be addressed in issues relating to coverage and deployment, scalability, quality-of-service, size, computational power, energy efficiency and security.

This highly useful Guide to Wireless Sensor Networks presents a comprehensive account of the fundamental concepts, new ideas and results in the field of WSNs. Offering a wide coverage of subjects, from core issues to specialized topics, this reader-friendly book provides a valuable reference for academics and practitioners alike. With its helpful teaching tools, it is also an ideal textbook for graduate students wishing to learn more about the topic.

Features:

• Provides an accessible, comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art technology of wireless sensor networks

• Offers a set of questions at the end of each chapter to help readers assess their understanding of the various concepts

• Includes reader-friendly discussions for practitioners, directions for future research, helpful lists of terms and definitions

• Designed, in structure and content, to aid the learning process with the intention of making the book useful at all learning levels

• Presents insight into the practical significance of these topics in real-world scenarios

• Supplies supportive presentation PowerPoint slides and solutions to aid lecturers at www.springer.com/978-1-84882-217-7
