    System planners, architects, and developers often make the same mistakes on grand scales, but we usually stay with familiar approaches, especially under deadline pressures. Engineers and managers embrace the concept of process improvement, yet they rarely take time (or have the privilege of taking the time) to consider how something that has worked in the past could be improved. It is equally rare... View full abstract»

    This decision making process for a mobile robot can be adapted to clusters of sensor nodes rather than an individual sensor node. Preference can be given to a particular cluster for management (power management, node density management, etc.) based on activity level, the number of sensor nodes, and the importance of the activity. If the number of nodes is critical for the given application, then i... View full abstract»
