Monitoring Connectivity in Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

It is important to have continuous connectivity in a wireless sensor network after it is deployed in a hostile environment. However, such networks are constrained by the low user-to-node ratio, limited energy and bandwidth resources, entities that are usually mobile, networks without fixed infrastructure and frequent failure due to problems of energy, vulnerability to attack, etc. To address these difficulties, there is a need for wireless sensor networks to be self-organizing and self-configuring so as to improve performance, increase energy efficiency, save resources and reduce data transmission.
