Sensor networks are used in various fields such as marine, defense, and smart home etc. Among the components of the sensor network, the sensor node collects sensor data, as one of the representative sensor network roles, and the sensor node makes a greate influence on the overall performance of the sensor network. Therefore, how to design the sensor node is an important issue in the sensor network field. However, the research on the sensor network architecture suitable for the sensor network installation environment has been made more important than the research on how to configure the sensor node. In this paper, we propose to identify elements to be considered for designing a sensor node that makes a large influence on the performance of the sensor network, and to easily implement the sensor node through the state transition model based on these elements.
