A Survey of the Effect of Network Parameters on Communication Links in Wireless Sensor Networks
Sensor networks are a collection of large number of low-cost, low-power, multifunctional, and small sensors. a transceiver and a power source .Wireless sensor networks hold the promise of many new applications in the area of monitoring and control. Examples include target tracking, intrusion detection, wildlife habitat monitoring, climate control and disaster management. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have gained worldwide attention in recent years, particularly with the proliferation in Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology which has facilitated the development of smart sensors .Distributed systems with hundreds and even thousands of very small, battery-power and, wirelessly connected sensor and actuator nodes are becoming a reality.
