About this item

This book presents a comprehensive overview of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) with an emphasis on security, coverage, and localization. It offers a structural treatment of WSN building blocks including hardware and protocol architectures and also provides a systems-level view of how WSNs operate. These building blocks will allow readers to program specialized applications and conduct research in advanced topics.
A brief introductory chapter covers common applications and communication protocols for WSNs. Next, the authors review basic mathematical models such as Voroni diagrams and Delaunay triangulations. Sensor principles, hardware structure, and medium access protocols are examined. Security challenges ranging from defense strategies to network robustness are explored, along with quality of service measures. Finally, this book discusses recent developments and future directions in WSN platforms.
Each chapter concludes with classroom-tested exercises that reinforce key concepts. This book is suitable for researchers and for practitioners in industry. Advanced-level students in electrical engineering and computer science will also find the content helpful as a textbook or reference.
