A New Vision Using Sensor Technology for Environmental Monitoring System in the State of Kuwait
This paper presents the technology choices for implementing Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in the state of Kuwait, which can be used for in-situ environmental monitoring. WSN is an embedded, massively distributed networking paradigm consisting of large number of intelligent and multi-task sensor devices connected mainly via short-range wireless links. The unique features, requirements, and applications of WSN lead to many open design and implementation issues. In this paper, the authors survey the sensor network technology by focusing on its basic structure and usage.
