Introduction to Practical Deployments on Wireless Sensor Networks
In the recent years there have been many published papers related on sensors. The authors can say that it is one of the hot topics of the last decades. But, the more they read, the more they realize that almost all are theoretical proposals or new theories. Very few works show real sensor networks deployments. While sensor network surveys show their benefits and the fields where they can be applied, they don't show who, how and where they have been deployed. In this paper, they are going to explain which motivation has roused one to create this special issue, and they will provide the main steps that a practical deployment should follow to be implemented.
