About this book


Advances in networking influence many kinds of monitoring and control systems in the most dramatic way. Sensor network and configuration falls under the category of modern networking systems. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has emerged and caters to the need for real-world applications. Methodology and design of WSN represents a broad research topic with applications in many sectors such as industry, home, computing, agriculture, environment, and so on, based on the adoption of fundamental principles and the state-of-the-art technology. WSN has been preferred choice for the design and development of next generation monitoring and control systems. This book incorporates a selection of research and development papers. Its scope is on history and background, underlying design methodology, application domains and recent developments. The readers will be able to understand the underlying technology, philosophy, concepts, ideas, and principles, with regard to broader areas of sensor network. Aspects of sensor network in terms of basics, standardization, design process, practice, techniques, platforms, and experimental results have been presented in proper order.
