About the Book
This book presents an in-depth study on the recent advances in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). It describes the existing WSN applications and discusses the research efforts being undertaken in this field. Theoretical analysis and factors influencing protocol design are also highlighted. The book explores state-of-the-art protocols for WSN protocol stack in transport, routing, data link, and physical layers. Moreover, the synchronization and localization problems in WSNs are investigated along with existing solutions. Furthermore, cross-layer solutions are described. Finally, developing areas of WSNs including sensor-actor networks, multimedia sensor networks, and WSN applications in underwater and underground environments are also explored and includes problems and solutions to assist learning.
