Sensor Network Operations, 9780471719762 (0471719765), John Wiley & Sons, 2006

Designing and operating sensor networks, featuring leading researchers and the latest, yet unpublished findings

Sensor Network Operations introduces mission-oriented sensor networks as distributed dynamic systems of interacting sensing devices, which function as a network to execute complex real-time missions. Rapidly developing and much in demand, these smart systems offer novel solutions to problems arising in national security, intelligent transportation, industrial production, scientific research, and other arenas.

A comprehensive look at the current state of the science, as well as a useful toolbox for developing specific applications, Sensor Network Operations begins with the requirements presented by real-world tasks, then shows how these translate into operational algorithms and sensor applications. This logical flow points the way towards the design of practical sensor networks for dependable operations.

The coverage is presented in three parts:

  • Part I, Sensor Network Operations Overview discusses the motivation and structure of the book, lays out the background on sensor platforms and mission-oriented sensor networks, and introduces important trends in sensor development
  • Part II, Sensor Network Design and Operations offers many specific algorithms for controlling sensor networks. Specific topics covered include sensor deployment, self-organization, and localization; mobility and navigation; lower-layer protocols; routing; power management; distributed sensing and data gathering; and network security
  • Part III, Sensor Network Applications presents several sensor network applications and illustrates how sensor networks may be used. These include pursuer-evader tracking in sensor networks; embedded soft sensing in mobile robotic networks; multi-sensor network-based framework for video surveillance; context-sensing wearable systems; multiple bit stream image transmission over wireless sensor networks; and noise-adaptive networks for vehicle tracking

Sensor Network Operations offers an eminently useful introduction of this exciting, emerging field for students, as well as an essential reference for researchers and other practitioners developing, deploying, and operating sensor networks.

Research Issues in Systems Analysis and Design, Databases and Software Development
Ever since the first major software systems were developed, a chronic “software crisis” has been seen either looming ahead or haunting the community (Brooks, 1975). Solutions have been sought mostly in raising the productivity of programmers, making systems less defective (e.g., process management and development approaches; Boehm,...
