A Framework for Sensor Networks With Multiple Owners
Source: University of Kansas
Latest developments in wireless communications attracted increased research upon sensor networks. The low-cost, low-power sensor devices often have limited computation and communication capabilities beyond the basic environment sensing. These capabilities coupled with growth in electronics opened up many technical issues in building networked systems based on them. This led to the design and architecture of systems. The objectives of, the SensorNet initiative were to: develop and/or discover the technology, standards, and technical requirements for an integrated national warning and alert system, to provide an incident discovery, awareness and response capability addressing local, regional, and national needs.
