Wireless sensor networks have become an important research area in the field of computers and electronics in the last decade. The original motivation for the development of wireless sensor networks was military applications such as battlefield surveillance. However there are number of other applications of wireless sensor networks such as healthcare monitoring, forest fire detection, environment monitoring, home automation. This paper gives a brief overview of what a wireless sensor network is its applications, challenges in wireless sensor networks, network lifetime and the techniques for maximizing the network lifetime.
