    Miniature wireless sensors with long lifetimes enable new applications for medical diagnosis, infrastructure monitoring, military surveillance, and environmental sensing among many other applications in a growing field. Sensor miniaturization leads to decreased on-sensor energy capacity, and lifetime requirements further constrain the sensor's power budget. To enable millimeter-scale wireless sens...

    Sensor networks potentially feature large numbers of nodes. The nodes can monitor and sense their environment over time, communicate with each other over a wireless network, and process information that they exchange with each other. They differ from data networks in that the network as a whole may be designed for a specific application. We study the theoretical foundations of such large-scale sen... View full abstract»

  • Gossip Algorithms for Distributed Signal Processing

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):1847 - 1864

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (730 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Gossip algorithms are attractive for in-network processing in sensor networks because they do not require any specialized routing, there is no bottleneck or single point of failure, and they are robust to unreliable wireless network conditions. Recently, there has been a surge of activity in the computer science, control, signal processing, and information theory communities, developing faster and... View full abstract»

    With deeply embedded wireless sensors, a new tier of the Internet is emerging that will extend into the physical world. These wireless sensor nodes are expected to vastly outnumber conventional computer hosts as we see them today, but their strict resource constraints are unlike other technologies already common to the Internet. As wireless sensor network research took off, many in the field esche... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (748 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Sensor networking hardware, networking, and operating system software has matured to the point that the major challenges facing the field now have to do with storing, cleaning, and querying the data such networks produce. In this paper, we survey several research systems designed for managing sensor data using declarative database-like abstractions from the database community and specifically the ...

    We are observing an increasing trend of connecting embedded sensors and sensor networks to the Internet and publishing their output on the Web. We believe that this development is a precursor of a Web of Things, which gives real-world objects and places a Web presence that not only contains a static description of these entities, but also their real-time state. Just as document searches have becom... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with the application of wireless sensor network (WSN) technology to long-duration and large-scale environmental monitoring. The holy grail is a system that can be deployed and operated by domain specialists not engineers, but this remains some distance into the future. We present our views as to why this field has progressed less quickly than many envisaged it would over a ... View full abstract»

  • Measurement Scheduling for Soil Moisture Sensing: From Physical Models to Optimal Control

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):1918 - 1933
    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (818 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we consider the problem of monitoring soil moisture evolution using a wireless network of in situ sensors. Continuously sampling moisture levels with these sensors incurs high-maintenance and energy consumption costs, which are particularly undesirable for wireless networks. Our main hypothesis is that a sparser set of measurements can meet the monitoring objectives in an energy-eff... View full abstract»

    Imaging sensors, or “imagers,” embedded in the natural environment enable remote collection of large quantities of data, thus easing the design and deployment of sensing systems in a variety of application domains. Yet, the data collected from such imagers are difficult to interpret due to a variety of “nuisance factors” in the data formation process, such as illuminati... View full abstract»

    Driven by the confluence between the need to collect data about people's physical, physiological, psychological, cognitive, and behavioral processes in spaces ranging from personal to urban and the recent availability of the technologies that enable this data collection, wireless sensor networks for healthcare have emerged in the recent years. In this review, we present some representative applica... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we discuss the emerging application of device-free localization (DFL) using wireless sensor networks, which find people and objects in the environment in which the network is deployed, even in buildings and through walls. These networks are termed “RF sensor networks” because the wireless network itself is the sensor, using radio-frequency (RF) signals to probe the dep... View full abstract»
