Ns2 Projects in Wireless Sensor Networks

Ns2 Projects in Wireless Sensor Networks is also Spatially distributed autonomous devices define as wireless sensor networks. It also uses sensors to monitor physical and also environmental conditions. A gateway that offers also connectivity with wired network or distributed systems.

Architecture of wireless sensor network:

Wireless sensor consists of three main components which also includes:

  • Nodes
  • Gateways
  • And also Software

Applications of NS2 Projects in Wireless Sensor Networks:

  • Environmental monitoring of air, water, and also soil
  • Industrial machine monitoring
  • Traffic monitoring
  • Structural monitoring also for buildings and also bridges
  • Medical device monitoring
  • Military applications
  • Asset tracking
  • Robot control
  • Process monitoring
  • And also Video surveillance

Components of Wireless Sensor Network :

  • A wireless sensor nodes contains multiple components which also include,
    • Radio
    • Battery
    • Microcontroller
    • Analog circuit
    • And also Sensor interface

Wireless Sensor Network  Topologies:

  • Normally wireless sensor networks also supports three types of network topologies there below,
    • Star
    • Cluster tree
    • And also Mesh

Characteristics of Wireless Sensor Network :

  • Nodes mobility
  • Heterogeneity of nodes
  • Scalability to large scale of deployment
  • Can withstand in large environment conditions
  • Easy to use
  • Design of cross layer
  • Cope to work with node failure
  • And also Energy harvesting

Platform also supported by Wireless Sensor Network :

  • LiteOS.
  • Contiki.
  • UNIX.
  • eCos.
  • TinyOS.
  • And also uC/OS.
