Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) were initially designed to facilitate military operations but its application has since been extended to health, traffic, and many other consumer and industrial areas. The size of the sensor nodes can also range from the size of a shoe box to as small as the size of a grain of dust. As such, their prices also vary from a few pennies to hundreds of dollars depending on the functionality parameters of a sensor like energy consumption, computational speed rate, bandwidth, and memory.
