"John R. Vacca has been a forward thinker in how omnipotent networks will work and envisioned many types of devices and functions that can be networked. His work in these areas is unsurpassed by other writers and visionaries.
In this book, John has pulled together the knowledge that is needed for managers and developers to keep moving forward, and to do so faster, with sensor networking machines and devices that can perform both the mundane and complex tasks that are required for process management and production, which is necessary to propel enterprises and thus drive the global economy.
Sensor networks are rapidly growing in size, scope, and functionality. This book provides a bottom-up analysis of sensor networking technology. It will enable managers and designers to create and deploy this important technological breakthrough."
