Wireless sensor networks promise an unprecedented fine-grained interface between the virtual and the physical world. They are one of the most rapidly developing new information technologies, with applications in a wide range of fields including industrial process control, security and surveillance, environmental sensing, and structural health monitoring. The subject of this project is motivated by the urgent need to provide a comprehensive and organized survey of the field. It shows how the core challenges of energy efficiency, robustness, and autonomy are addressed in these systems by networking techniques across multiple layers. The topics covered include network deployment, wireless characteristics, time synchronization, congestion and error control, medium access, standards, topology control, routing, security, data transfer, transport protocols and new technologies and materials in fabricating sensors.
