As the Internet of Things makes things more interesting by connecting real-world objects, places and people through the digital world, one of the most promising technologies in this area is sensor networks. It will be fascinating to look back in the years ahead and note the growing interest of the use of sensor networks in huge real-world applications. Due to the emergence of different kinds of sensors and the envisaged proliferation of different and specific types of services supported by these sensors, the use of networks based on a large amount of sensors seems to be a real challenge to take into account several kinds of application.
This book focuses on the current state-of-the-art research results and experience reports in the area of deployment techniques dedicated to Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). It details all the deployment approaches used in this area in the case of static and mobile environments. Moreover, an in-depth discussion concerning deployment-related issues such as deployment cost, coverage, sensor uncertainty, connectivity, sensor reliability, network lifetime, and harsh deployment environments is provided. Sensor networks connected together as part of the Internet of Things are today considered one of the main challenges and the business revolution for the coming years.
