Introduction to Wireless Sensor Networks

This article helps understand what wireless sensor networks are all about and how they are related to other wireless networks. This also helps in establishing the intended application areas and spot the limitations of a wireless sensor networks. A wireless sensor network is a wireless network consisting of spatially distributed autonomous devices using sensors to cooperatively monitor physical and environmental conditions, such as temperatures, pressure, vibration, sound, motion or pollutants at different locations.

In addition to one more sensors, each node in a sensor network is typically equipped with a radio transceiver other wireless communication device, a small microcontroller and an energy source usually a battery.

A sensor network normally constitutes a wireless ad-hoc network meaning that each sensor generally supports a multi-hop routing algorithm. The benefits of wireless sensor networks include possibility of rapid networking in application or places where suitable infrastructure is inaccessible. In addition to that information can be achieved in sensor network by aggregating results from several nodes. Some of the popular application includes disaster relief operations, temperature monitoring operations.

Advanticsys is one company that is very popular for providing solutions in information and communication technologies specialising in wireless sensor networks including the Tmote Sky platform.
