Engineers have many wireless sensor network (WSN) algorithms to choose from when designing a wireless measurement system. However, it seems that each system with its specific requirements needs a corresponding algorithm, and existing algorithms cannot be effectively changed to fit the differences. In this column, we do not create a "one for all" solution, which is probably unattainable, but we present our approach to creating a WSN algorithm, an object-oriented WSN protocol using neighborhood discovery and clustering procedures, an explanation of a universally unique identifier (UUID) for nodes, the use of gradient-like functions for selfemerging clustered network structures and the topic of security. We will also show some practical applications based on our research.
