Recently, the use of wireless sensor networks has spread to applications areas that are not viable or cost-efficient to be run on other types of networks. Due to some critical tasks done in these types of networks, the majority of sensor networks applications should be dependable and should be run continuously and reliably without interruption. Hence, the two more significant dependability factors that should be nowadays taken into account in developing wireless sensor networks applications are 'Availability' and 'Reliability' of application services.
