Wireless Sensor Networks and Applications

By Yingshu Li , My T. Thai

Wireless Sensor Networks and Applications Cover Image

Wireless sensor networks are currently being employed in a variety of applications ranging from medical to military, and from home to industry. Wireless Sensor Networks and Applications aims to provide a reference tool for the increasing number of scientists who depend upon sensor networks in some way. The topics covered include network design and modeling, network management, data management, security and applications. The topic covered in each chapter is given expository but also scholarly treatment, covering the history of the topic, reviewing state-of-the-art thinking relative to the topic, and discussing currently unsolved problems of special interest.
