Wireless sensor network in IOT automation and its endowment to enable green computing is of prime concern in recent years. Internet of things (IOT) is the buzz word in today’s computing world. It is a collection of devices, connected in the internet that can be controlled, monitored and utilized for a purposeful application. One of the most important elements in the IoT paradigm is wireless sensor networks. The emerging field of wireless sensor networks combines sensing, computation, and communication into a single tiny device. Most often, the connected devices will be obeying the internet protocols and the devices have the capability of sensing the environmental conditions. The devices connected to IOT may use wireless or Radio-frequency identification (RFID), machine to machine (M2M), near frequency communication (NFC), and vehicle to vehicle (V2V) as a connection medium for connecting the host network. The IOT devices sense the environmental conditions using sensor network comprised of sensor nodes. Due to miniature size, minimized data transmission and very low power factor, the sensor devices are attracting and holding a greater space in real-time data computation environments. This makes to concentrate on wireless sensor networks and its benefits towards IOT.
