Wireless sensor networks have received significant attention because of their important role and many conveniences in our lives. Indeed, the recent and fast advances in inexpensive sensor technology and wireless communications has made the design and development of large-scale wireless sensor networks cost-effective and appealing to a wide range of mission-critical situations, including civilian, natural, industrial, and military applications, such as health and environmental monitoring, seism monitoring, industrial process automation, and battlefields surveillance, respectively. A wireless sensor network consists of a large number of tiny, low-powered devices, called sensors, which are randomly or deterministically deployed in a field of interest while collaborating and coordinating for the successful accomplishment of their mission. These sensors suffer from very scarce resources and capabilities, such as bandwidth, storage, CPU, battery power (or energy), sensing, and communication, to name a few, with energy being the most critical one. The major challenge in the design process of this type of network is mainly due to the limited capabilities of the sensors, and particularly, their energy, which makes them unreliable. This book aims to develop a reader’s thorough understanding of the opportunities and challenges of k-covered wireless sensor networks, where each point in a deployment field is covered (or sensed) by at least k sensors. Following René Descartes’ most elegant methodology of dividing each difficulty into as many parts as might be possible and necessary to best solve it (Discours de la Method, 1637), this book presents a variety of theoretical studies based on percolation theory and computational geometry, as well as protocols that lead to the design of a unified framework, where connected k-coverage, sensor scheduling, and data routing and dissemination are jointly considered.

What You Will Learn Interact with XBee boards using the XCTU program on Windows, OS X, or Linux Make your Arduino boards communicate wirelessly, using XBee modules in the advanced API mode Centrally collect and store measured sensor data, in the cloud or your own database Connect the coordinator Arduino to the Internet and send data to web services Control your environment automatically, based on sensor input from your network Interact with off-the-shelf ZigBee Home Automation devices Make your devices battery-powered and let them sleep to get months or even years of battery life In Detail Arduino has been established as the de facto standard microcontroller programming platform, being used for one-off do-it-yourself projects as well as prototypes for actual products. By providing a myriad of libraries, the Arduino community has made it very easy to interact with pretty much any piece of hardware out there. XBee offers a great range of low-power wireless solutions that are easy to work with, by taking all of the complexity of wireless (mesh) networking out of your hands and letting you focus on what to send without worrying about the how. Building wireless sensor networks is cost-effective as well as efficient as it will be done with Arduino support. The book starts with a brief introduction to various wireless protocols, concepts, and the XBee hardware that enables their use. Then the book expands to explain the Arduino boards to you, letting them read and send sensor data, collect that data centrally, and then even control your home from the Internet. Moving further more advanced topics such as interacting through the standard Zigbee Home Automation protocol, or making your application power-efficient are covered. By the end of the book, you will have all the tools needed to build complete, real-world solutions. Style and approach A hands-on guide, featuring a single home automation project that can be built as described or with endless variations. Every step is illustrated with complete examples and screenshots, allowing you to build the examples swiftly.
