Wireless Sensor Network Data Storage Optimization Strategy

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 295)


Wireless sensor network (WSN) is developing to be a new data-centric computer technology fields, which combined with wireless communication technology, computer network technology, sensor technology, and micro-electromechanical technology. WSN is a data-centric network, the application layer users most concern is that how to transmit and store the data of perception and monitor each nodes effectively rather than the situation of deployment scenarios and the underlying hardware. So, the data storage is an important area of research in wireless sensor network. This paper studies the status of the data storage strategy, introduced several data storage ideas, analyzes their advantages and disadvantages, and the future development are put forward.
