Routing protocol for wireless sensor network at critical condition
Sensor networks are increasingly being deployed for§monitoring of physical environments subjected to§different applications such as medical, military,§agriculture,industry, transport etc. One of the most§important applications of a wireless sensor network§is critical conditions monitoring such as fire,§leaking of toxic gases and explosions. In such cases,§it is important that information can be sensed from§the physical environment, where the sensor network is§deployed, while the emergency state is in progress.§ A great challenge to these networks is to provide a§fast, reliable, and fault tolerant channel for events§diffusion even in the presence of emergency§conditions that can lead to node failures and path§disruption, like dust, fire etc, to the sink that§receives those events.§This book covers detailed explanation for routing§protocols selected from wireless sensor network (WSN)§and mobile ad hoc network (MANET) and performed an§investigation of a routing protocol for critical§conditions monitoring applications. This work is§especially useful to companies who are working at WSN§areas, professionals and students who want to perform§their research work in this area.
