ByDharma P. Agrawal, Ratnabali Biswas, Neha Jain, Anindo Mukherjee

Recent technological advances have enabled distributed information gathering from a given location or region by deploying a large number of networked tiny microsensors, which are low-power devices equipped with programmable computing, multiple sensing, and communication capability. Microsensor systems enable the reliable monitoring and control of a variety of applications. Such sensor nodes networked by wireless radio have revolutionized remote monitoring applications because of their ease of deployment, ad hoc connectivity, and cost effectiveness.
