Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) research has enabled large scale monitoring using small Sensors with radio links. The technological advance in wireless communications and microelectronics has enabled the development of small, low-cost Sensor Nodes. Wireless Sensor Networks are developed to organize and control these Sensor Nodes, which have sensing, data processing, communication and control capabilities. Information collected from these Sensor Nodes is routed to a sink Node via wireless communication approach. The research in the Wireless Sensor Network has focused primarily on the networks issues such as routing, data dissemination and aggregation of co-related data for downstream data delivery. The combination of small size, low cost and wireless networking functionality makes Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology exceptionally scalable.
Scientech 2311W Wireless Sensor Network will help users to design their own WSN network and also help them to understand the overall concept & its applications.
Precision agriculture is on of the most promising application domains where Wireless Sensor Networks can deliver a feasible or even optimal solution to monitor moisture, humidity, temperature etc. In precision agriculture, more number of the parameters are to be controlled. They are increasing day by day because of the development in agriculture technology. In this situation, the Wireless Sensor Network with additional hardware and software is an efficient solution.
Wireless Sensor Network technology has demonstrated a great potential for industrial applications, specifically in monitoring data such as pressure, humidity, temperature, flow, level, viscosity, density and vibration. Measurements can be collected through sensing units and transferred wirelessly to a main system for operation and management. Adopting WSNs for process monitoring provides great advantages over traditional wired system.
Environmental degradation has become one of the biggest concerns for almost every country. Water and air quality are essential to maintain the equilibrium between human development and a healthy environment. The solution proposed for this is an environmental monitoring system based on a Wireless Sensor Network. Wireless Sensor Networks are widely used in monitoring pollutions like air, water etc. It can be deployed in several cities to monitor the concentration of dangerous gases for citizens.
