Randomly Deployed Wireless Sensor Networks Book Review:

Wireless sensor networks have a range of applications, including military uses and in environmental monitoring. When an area of interest is inaccessible by conventional means, such a network can be deployed in ways resulting in a random distribution of the sensors. Randomly Deployed Wireless Sensor Networks offers a probabilistic method to model and analyze these networks. The book considers the network design, coverage, target detection, localization and tracking of sensors in randomly deployed wireless networks, and proposes a stochastic model. It quantifies the relationship between parameters of the network and its performance, and puts forward a communication protocol. The title provides analyses and formulas, giving engineering insight into randomly deployed wireless sensor networks. Five chapters consider the analysis of coverage performance; working modes and scheduling mechanisms; the relationship between sensor behavior and network performance properties; probabilistic forwarding routing protocols; localization methods for multiple targets and target number estimation; and experiments on target localization and tracking with a Mica sensor system.

Parameter Assignment for Improved Connectivity and Security in Randomly Deployed Wireless Sensor Networks Via Hybrid Omni uni directional Antennas Book Review:

Configuring a network system to operate at optimal levels of performance requires a comprehensive understanding of the effects of a variety of system parameters on crucial metrics like connectivity and resilience to network attacks. Traditionally, omni-directional antennas have been used for communication in wireless sensor networks. In this thesis, a hybrid communication model is presented where-in, nodes in a network are capable of both omni-directional and uni-directional communication. The effect of such a model on performance in randomly deployed wireless sensor net-works is studied, specifically looking at the effect of a variety of network parameters on network performance. The work in this thesis demonstrates that, when the hybrid communication model is employed, the probability of 100% connectivity improves by almost 90% and that of k-connectivity improves by almost 80% even at low node densities when compared to the traditional omni-directional model. In terms of network security, it was found that the hybrid approach improves network resilience to the collision attack by almost 85% and the cost of launching a successful network partition attack was increased by as high as 600%. The gains in connectivity and resilience were found to improve with increasing node densities and decreasing antenna beamwidths.

Coverage Control in Sensor Networks Book Review:

The advances in sensor design have decreased the size, weight, and cost of sensors by orders of magnitude, yet with the increase of higher spatial and temporal re- lution and accuracy. With the fast progress of sensors design and communications technique, sensor networks have also been quickly evolving in both research and practical domains in the last decade. More and more sensor networks have been - ployed in real-world to gather information for our daily life. Applications of sensor networks can be found in battle?eld surveillance, environmental monitoring, b- logical detection, smart spaces, industrial diagnostics, etc. Although the technique of sensor networks has a very promising future, many challenges are still deserving lots of research efforts for its successful applications. Thisbookisdevotedtocoveragecontrol,oneofthemostfundamentalandimportant research issues in sensor networks. The aim of the book is to provide tutorial-like and up-to-date reference resources on various coverage control problems in sensor networks, a hot topic that has been intensively researched in recent years. Due to some unique characteristics of sensor networks such as energy constraint and - hoc topology, the coverage problems in sensor networks have many new scenarios and features that entitle them an important research issue in recent years. I have done my best to include in the book the most recent advances, techniques, protocols, results, and ?ndings in this ?eld.

Self Organized Inference of Spatial Structure in Randomly Deployed Sensor Networks Book Review:

Randomly deployed wireless sensor networks are becoming increasingly viable for applications such as environmental monitoring, battlefield awareness, tracking and smart environments. Such networks can comprise anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of sensor nodes, and these sizes are likely to grow with advancing technology, making scalability a primary concern. Each node in these sensor networks is a small unit with limited resources and localized sensing and communication. Thus, all global tasks must be accomplished through self-organized distributed algorithms, which also lead to improved scalability, robustness and flexibility. In this thesis, we examine the use of distributed algorithms to infer the spatial structure of an extended environment monitored by a self organizing sensor network. Based on its sensing, the network segments the environment into regions with distinct characteristics, thereby inferring a cognitive map of the environment. This, in turn, can be used to answer global queries about the environment efficiently and accurately. We consider distributed machine learning techniques for segmentation. We also present a heuristic for segmenting within boundaries to obtain distinct segments and study the variation of segmentation quality with reconstruction at different node densities and in environments of varying complexity.

Challenges and Opportunities of Connected k Covered Wireless Sensor Networks Book Review:

“The decomposition of the difficulties to be resolved, or the objects to be known, should be pushed up to the simplest elements ... Such elements are seized directly and completely by the intuition. ” René Descartes, Discours de la méthode (1637) Wireless sensor networks have received significant attention because of their - portant role and many conveniences in our lives. Indeed, the recent and fast - vances in inexpensive sensor technology and wireless communications have made the design and development of large-scale wireless sensor networks cost-effective and appealing to a wide range of mission-critical situations, including civilian, natural, industrial, and military applications, such as health and environmental monitoring, seism monitoring, industrial process automation, and battlefields s- veillance, respectively. A wireless sensor network consists of a large number of - ny, low-powered devices, called sensors, which are randomly or deterministically deployed in a field of interest while collaborating and coordinating for the successful accomplishment of their mission. These sensors suffer from very scarce resources and capabilities, such as bandwidth, storage, CPU, battery power (or - ergy), sensing, and communication, to name a few, with energy being the most critical one. The major challenge in the design process of this type of network is mainly due to the limited capabilities of the sensors, and particularly, their energy, which makes them unreliable.

Topology Control in Wireless Sensor Networks Book Review:

The eld of wireless sensor networks continues to evolve and grow in both practical and research domains. More and more wireless sensor networks are being used to gather information in real life applications. It is common to see how this technology is being applied in irrigation systems, intelligent buildings, bridges, security mec- nisms,militaryoperations,transportation-relatedapplications,etc.Atthesametime, new developments in hardware, software, and communication technologies are - panding these possibilities. As in any other technology, research brings new dev- opments and re nements and continuous improvements of current approaches that push the technology even further. Looking toward the future, the technology seems even more promising in two directions. First, a few years from now more powerful wireless sensor devices will be available, and wireless sensor networks will have applicability in an endless number of scenarios, as they will be able to handle traf c loads not possible today, make more computations, store more data, and live longer because of better energy sources. Second,a few years from now, the opposite scenario might also be possible. The availability of very constrained, nanotechnology-made wireless sensor devices will bring a whole new world of applications, as they will be able to operate in - vironments and places unimaginable today. These two scenarios, at the same time, will both bring new research challenges that are always welcome to researchers.
