Information processing in sensor networks is a rapidly emerging
area of computer science and electrical engineering research.
Because of advances in micro-sensors, wireless networking and
embedded processing, ad hoc networks of sensor are becoming
increasingly available for commercial, military, and homeland
security applications. Examples include monitoring (e.g., traffic,
habitat, security), industrail sensing and diagnostics (e.g.,
factory, appliances), infrastructures (i.e., power grid, water
distribution, waste disposal) and battle awareness (e.g.,
multi-target tracking). This book introduces practitioners to the
fundamental issues and technology constraints concerning various
aspects of sensor networks such as information organization,
querying, routing, and self-organization using concrete examples
and does so by using concrete examples from current research and
AWritten for practitioners, researchers, and students and relevant
to all application areas, including environmental monitoring,
industrial sensing and diagnostics, automotive and transportation,
security and surveillance, military and battlefield uses, and
large-scale infrastructural maintenance.
ASkillfully integrates the many disciplines at work in wireless
sensor network design: signal processing and estimation,
communication theory and protocols, distributed algorithms and
databases, probabilistic reasoning, energy-aware computing, design
methodologies, evaluation metrics, and more.
ADemonstrates how querying, data routing, and network
self-organization can support high-level information-processing
