Abstract: The Wireless Sensor Network is built of “nodes” – from a few to several hundreds or even thousands, where each node is connected to one (or sometimes several) sensors. Each such sensor network node has typically several parts: a radio transceiver with an internal antenna or connection to an external antenna, a micro controller, an electronic circuit for interfacing with the sensors and an energy source, usually a battery or an embedded form of energy harvesting. A sensor node might vary in size. It detects things like temperature, sound, vibrations, pressure, motion, or pollutants through autonomous sensors. They are currently being used for industries and civilian use such as industrial process monitoring and control, machine health monitoring, monitoring of the environment, health care applications, home automation, tracking and traffic control. More specific applications would be things like habitat monitoring, tracking objects, detecting fires or landslides, and monitoring traffic. Generally a WSN would be scattered in an area where its sensor nodes collect data.
