Fundamentals of Large Sensor Networks: Connectivity, Capacity, Clocks and Computation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Sensor networks potentially feature large numbers of nodes. The nodes can monitor and sense their environment over time, communicate with each other over a wireless network, and process information that they exchange with each other. They differ from data networks in that the network as a whole may be designed for a specific application. The authors study the theoretical foundations of such large scale sensor networks. They address four fundamental organizational and operational issues related to large sensor networks - connectivity, capacity, clocks and function computation.
