Review

"…this book represents an authoritative yet open-minded source to acquire a solid understanding of the fundamentals of WSNs.  It is a recommended and enjoy read." (Computing Reviews, March 11, 2008)

From the Back Cover

Learn all you need to know about wireless sensor networks!

Protocols and Architectures for Wireless Sensor Networks provides a thorough description of the nuts and bolts of wireless sensor networks.

The authors give an overview of the state-of-the-art, putting all the individual solutions into perspective with one and other.  Numerous practical examples, case studies and illustrations demonstrate the theory, techniques and results presented.  The clear chapter structure, listing learning objectives, outline and summarizing key points, help guide the reader expertly through the material.

 Protocols and Architectures for Wireless Sensor Networks:            

  • Covers architecture and communications protocols in detail with practical implementation examples and case studies.
  • Provides an understanding of mutual relationships and dependencies between different protocols and architectural decisions.
  • Offers an in-depth investigation of relevant protocol mechanisms. 
  • Shows which protocols are suitable for which tasks within a wireless sensor network and in which circumstances they perform efficiently. 
  • Features an extensive website with the bibliography, PowerPoint slides, additional exercises and worked solutions.

This text provides academic researchers, graduate students in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering, as well as practitioners in industry and research engineers with an understanding of the specific design challenges and solutions for wireless sensor networks.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a significant reference book. It provides a very thorough walk through of all wireless sensor communications issues and protocols. If you ignore all the appendices, bibliography, etc. it clocks in a ~430 pages. It uses a fairly tiny ~10-point font, making it a bit tough to read, which is a very minor quibble. I only point that out because if they had used a more readable 11-12 point font, this book would be well over 600+ pages, which just emphasizes how much material the book covers. They generally walk through high level concepts, then drill into issues and tradeoff considerations, followed by a further drilldown into specific protocols and examples. A very solid structured approach. There is a good bit of math in the book making it highly suitable for a textbook; indeed a graduate course is stated as a target audience. There is enough meat here that you could just skip that and still learn a lot. The writing is a bit on the dry/academic side, but coherent. A lot of tables with sample data points showing cross sections of different products and how they perform; very useful in showing trends and/or the wide range of solutions and tradeoff decisions designers make in their prducts. One thing to be aware of is that sensor OSs and internal sensor hardware is generally out of scope; the focus is on communications and associated considerations and protocols. That said, a good overview of WSN node hardware and operating system considerations is provided to help put communications issues in context. Bottom line: Excellent, comprehensive reference.

Format: Paperback
I was looking for a book that covers all important aspects of wireless sensor networks. This book has a clear style and is really very comprehensive. Absolutely worth the money. I bought a used one, which was like new. After so many books in this field it is really hard to create something up to date and unique. The reference section is very rich and the curious reader can quickly find vast literature sources with excellent content. The reader needs some previous knowledge, but is absolutely not necessary to be an expert in the field. Some basic math and networking experience will help definitely, but even without that it is possible to selectively read large portions of the book. The presented theory is very accessible for EE engineers to the point where a computer scientists would be comfortable with some of it.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides a profound and up-to-date description of wireless

sensor networks (WSNs), one of the hot topics in today's network

research area. All aspects of wireless sensor networks are

described in detail. These aspects are:

* types and capabilities of sensor nodes

* network architectures for WSNs,

* types and characteristics of layer-specific communication technics and

protocols in WSNs, including physical-layer considerations up to

application-specific support of WSNs

* applications in WSNs.

The authors do not only describe solutions for a lot of selective problems in

WSNs (the bibliography has more than 900 entries), they also consider

dependencies between these solutions and influences of these solutions on the

whole WSN.

This book is recommended for all readers who are interested in specific design

challenges and solutions for WSNs.
