Wireless sensor networks for environmental monitoring
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are based on innovative technologies that had revolutionized the methods in which we interact with the environment; i.e., through sensing the physical (e.g., re, motion, contact) and chemical (e.g., molecular concentration) properties of the natural surroundings. The hardware in which utilized by WSNs is rapidly evolving into sophisticated platforms that seamlessly integrate with dierent vendors and protocols (plug-n-play). In this project, we aim to develop a WSN framework which provides assistance with monitoring environmental conditions. We focus on three main applications which include: a. Air-quality monitoring, b. Gas-leak detection, and c. Fire sensing.
