Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) refers to a group of spatially dispersed and dedicated sensors for monitoring and recording the physical conditions of the environment, and organizing the collected data at a central location. Research in WSNs is gaining interest due their different applications and the challenges that the constrained resources of sensor nodes bring on the field. In this type of ad-hoc network, routing of data to the base station with secure transmission is of prime concerns. In this paper, the authors discuss possible improvements in WSN routing and security through the employment of concepts coming from Artificial Intelligence (AI) area, such as swarm intelligence, artificial immune systems and artificial neural networks.
