Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors study the problem of processing continuous range queries in a hierarchical wireless sensor network. Recently, as the size of sensor networks increases due to the growth of ubiquitous computing environments and wireless networks, building wireless sensor networks in a hierarchical configuration is put forth as a practical approach. Contrasted with the traditional approach of building networks in a "Flat" structure using sensor devices of the same capability, the hierarchical approach deploys devices of higher capability in a higher tier, i.e., a tier closer to the server. While query processing in flat sensor networks has been widely studied, the study on query processing in hierarchical sensor networks has been inadequate.
