Sensor Network Operations.


Sensor network operations.

Ed. by Shashi Phoha et al.



724 pages




This text is focused on the state of the art of methods for sensor network operations beginning with translating mission specifications into operational algorithms and concluding with applications. After an overview of the field, the editors (all affiliated with Pennsylvania State U.) present chapters on sensor network design and operations, covering sensor deployment, self-organization, and localization; purposeful mobility and navigation; lower layer issues (medium access control, scheduling, and transmission); network routing; power management; distributed sensing and data gathering; and network security. The applications section contains chapters on pursuer-evader tracking in sensor networks, embedded soft sensing for anomaly detection in mobile robotic networks, real-time superresolution imaging, using information theory to design context-sensing wearable systems, multiple bit stream image transmission over wireless sensor networks, hybrid sensor network test bed for reinforced target tracking, and noise-adaptive sensor network for vehicle tracking in the desert. Co-published by IEEE Press & Wiley.
