Although there are many books available on WSNs, most are low-level, introductory books. The few available for advanced readers fail to convey the breadth of knowledge required for those aiming to develop next-generation solutions for WSNs.
Filling this void, Wireless Sensor Networks: From Theory to Applications supplies comprehensive coverage of WSNs. In order to provide the wide-ranging guidance required, the book brings together the contributions of domain experts working in the various subfields of WSNs worldwide.
This edited volume examines recent advances in WSN technologies and considers the theoretical problems in WSN, including issues with monitoring, routing, and power control. It also details methodologies that can provide solutions to these problems. The book’s 25 chapters are divided into seven parts:
The book examines applications of WSN across a range of fields, including health, military, transportation, and mining. Addressing the main challenges in applying WSNs across all phases of our life, it explains how WSNs can assist in community development.
Complete with a list of references at the end of each chapter, this book is ideal for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, scholars, academics, industrial researchers, and practicing engineers working on WSNs. The text assumes that readers possess a foundation in computer networks, wireless communication, and basic electronics.
