The design of wireless sensor networks requires consideration for several disciplines such as distributed signal processing, communications and cross-layer design. Wireless Sensor Networks: Signal Processing and Communications focuses on the theoretical aspects of wireless sensor networks and offers readers signal processing and communication perspectives on the design of large-scale networks. It explains state-of-the-art design theories and techniques to readers and places emphasis on the fundamental properties of large-scale sensor networks.
Wireless Sensor Networks: Signal Processing and Communications :
- Approaches WSNs from a new angle – distributed signal processing, communication algorithms and novel cross-layer design paradigms.
- Applies ideas and illustrations from classical theory to an emerging field of WSN applications.
- Presents important analytical tools for use in the design of application-specific WSNs.
Wireless Sensor Networks will be of use to signal processing and communications researchers and practitioners in applying classical theory to network design. It identifies research directions for senior undergraduate and graduate students and offers a rich bibliography for further reading and investigation.
