Protocols and Architectures for Wireless Sensor Networks by Holger Karl

Integrating simple processing, storage, sensing, and communication capabilities into small-scale, low-cost devices and joining them into so-called wireless sensor networks opens the door to a plethora of new applications – or so it is commonly believed. It is a struggle to find a business model that can turn the bright visions into a prosperous and  actually useful undertaking. But this struggle can be won by applying  creative ideas to the underlying technology, assuming that this technology and its abilities as well as shortcomings and limitations are properly  understood. We have written this book in the hope of fostering this  understanding.
