Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have emerged as one of the huge research areas in this digital world since last few years. In this paper, we review total of 150 research papers from January 2015 to December 2015 in order to enlighten the researchers and educators about baseline of the current trends in the field. This study is a graphical and systematic review of various research works carried out in WSNs. These findings show that the research in WSNs received more attention over the past few years. For the primary research method of studying, highly cited research papers from top-rated publishers were included. Although a vast number of research objectives have been floated in this field, we analyzed that there are two main topics which are trending in 2015 as discussed in the paper. This analysis would provide insights for researchers, students, publishers, and experts to study current research trends in WSNs.
