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 implementation efforts.
