Wireless sensor networks: A survey on the state of the art and the 802.15.4 and ZigBee standards

Wireless sensor networks are an emerging technology for low-cost, unattended monitoring of a wide range of environments. Their importance has been enforced by the recent delivery of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for the physical and MAC layers and the forthcoming ZigBee standard for the network and application layers

Scholarcy highlights

  • Wireless sensor networks are an emerging technology for low-cost, unattended monitoring of a wide range of environments. Their importance has been enforced by the recent delivery of the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for the physical and MAC layers and the forthcoming ZigBee standard for the network and application layers
  • The fast progress of research on energy efficiency, networking, data management and security in wireless sensor networks, and the need to compare with the solutions adopted in the standards motivates the need for a survey on this field
  • Mr Chook joined the University of Bradford as a researcher in 2003 and has been actively involved in various European Projects – the IST WirelessCabin, SatNEx and the Inmarsat BGAN Extension Project. During his involvement in the WirelessCabin project, Mr Chook was appointed to participate in the demonstrator flight test where he was responsible for the system performance evaluation & analysis
  • In 2005, Mr Chook was actively involved in the Inmarsat project where he was responsible for the system protocol validation and the Radio Resource Management design
  • In late 2000 he joined the Computer Science Department of the University of Pisa as Assistant Professor, and since 2001 he his Research Associate with the Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione in Pisa. His current research interests are in the areas of wireless sensor networks and streaming authentication
  • She leads Bradford’s contributions towards the Networking Group in the EU funded project SatNEx – Satellite Network of Excellence as well as leading a research team towards contributions to the Inmarsat BGAN system development
