Guaranteeing QoS in Wireless Sensor Networks
Research Areas
  • Telematics
We have recently been witness to a great evolution in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) mainly down to an improvement in the hardware of the sensor nodes (miniaturization of the pieces, increase in ROM and RAM memory, greater energy resources, etc). This, together with the application possibilities that this type of network offers us, has brought about a renewed interest in WSN. One definition of WSN could be as follows: A network of small devices of limited resources, equipped with a CPU, sensors and transceivers that are embedded in a physical setting where they operate in unattended manner. A lot of research has been carried out up on the architecture and design of protocols, energy saving and location, however, very little of the research has centered on the optimization of the transmission of data through WSN, that is, in the Quality of Service (QoS) provided to the data travelling through these networks. The objective of this chapter is to summarise all of the research carried out in this area, especially that known as the communications protocols stack. To finish, we propose an application scenario in which we put into practice all of the knowledge compiled on QoS presented throughout this chapter.
