Description: The vast reduction in size and power consumption of CMOS circuitry
has led to a large research effort based around the vision of
wireless sensor networks. The proposed networks will be comprised
of thousands of small wireless nodes that operate in a multi-hop
fashion, replacing long transmission distances with many low power,
low cost wireless devices. The result will be the creation of an
intelligent environment responding to its inhabitants and ambient
conditions. Wireless devices currently being designed and built for
use in such environments typically run on batteries. However, as
the networks increase in number and the devices decrease in… more…
