  • Wireless wearable sensor networks have emerged as a promising technique for human motion tracking due to the flexibility and scalability. In such system several wireless sensor nodes being attached to human limb construct a wearable sensor network, where each sensor node including MEMS sensors (such as 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetometer and 3-axis gyroscope) monitors the limb orientation and transmits these information to the base station for reconstruction via low-power wireless communication technique. Due to the energy constraint, the high fidelity requirement for real time rendering of human motion and tiny operating system embedded in each sensor node adds more challenges for the system implementation. In this paper, we discuss such challenges and experiences in detail during the implementation of such system with wireless wearable sensor network which includes COTS wireless sensor nodes (Imote 2) and uses TinyOS 1.x in each sensor node. Since our system uses the COTS sensor nodes and popular tiny operating system, it might be helpful for further exploration in such field.

  • In this paper, in order to overcome the disadvantage of wireless-based sensor network, a hybrid sensor network using wired and wireless linkage is proposed. Proposed a wired and wireless linkage hybrid sensor network can compensate the defect of poor transmission at the indoor wireless environment, and can be free from interference between a wireless LAN and Bluetooth of the same frequency bandwidth due to an attribute of low-loss transmission at the CATV network. Also, proposed a wired and wireless linkage hybrid sensor network make use of CATV network which is well-built infrastructure, is more efficient to design network, assure a stability and high reliability of the sensor network as providing a stability for an inaccuracy and a predictable transmission link for the existing wireless network.

  • Wireless sensor network is an important research topic that has attracted a lot of attention in recent years. However, most of the interest has focused on wireless sensor network to gather scalar data such as temperature, humidity and vibration. Scalar data are insufficient for diverse applications such as video surveillance, target recognition and traffic monitoring. However, if we use camera sensors in wireless sensor network to collect video data which are vast in information, they can provide important visual information. Video sensor networks continue to gain interest due to their ability to collect video information for a wide range of applications in the past few years. However, how to efficiently store the massive data that reflect environmental state of different times in video sensor network and how to quickly search interested information from them are challenging issues in current research, especially when the sensor network environment is complicated. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a fast algorithm for extracting key frames from video and describe the design and implementation of key frame extraction and sharing in Android for wireless video sensor network.

  • Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) provide a promising approach to monitor the physical environments, to prolong the network lifetime by exploiting the mutual correlation among sensor readings has become a research focus. In this paper, we design a hierarchical network framework which guarantees layered-compression. Meanwhile, a data sorting-based adaptive spatial compression scheme (DS-ASCS) is proposed to explore the spatial correlation among signals. The proposed scheme reduces the amount of data transmissions and alleviates the network congestion. It also obtains high compression performance by sorting original sensor readings and selectively discarding the small coefficients in transformed matrix. Moreover, the compression ratio of this scheme varies according to the correlation among signals and the value of adaptive threshold, so the proposed scheme is adaptive to various deploying environments. Finally, the simulation results show that the energy of sorted data is more concentrated than the unsorted data, and the proposed scheme achieves higher reconstruction precision and compression ratio as compared with other spatial compression schemes.

  • A wireless sensor network is being actively researched around the world that are connected to the mesh are a plurality of sensor nodes in a wireless manner that span different regions of the techniques. However, wireless communications use the limitation of resources, so it is very weak due to the properties of the network itself secure in comparison to the normal network. Wireless sensor network is divided into tapped-based attacks, forgery based attacks, denial of service attacks based largely by securities laws must defend against various attacks such as insertion of the wrong information being sent eavesdropping or modification of information, which is usually sensor network applications need to do. The countermeasure of sensor network attack is described in this research, and it will contribute to establish a secure sensor network communication.

  • This paper presents an analysis architecture of embedded operating systems for wireless sensor network. Wireless multi-hop sensor networks use battery-operated computing and sensing device. We expect sensor networks to be deployed in an ad hoc fashion, with very high energy constraints. These characteristics of multi-hop wireless sensor networks and applications motivate an operating system that is different from traditional embedded operating system. These days new wireless sensor network embedded operating system come out with some advances compared with previous ones. The analysis is focusing on understanding differences of dominant wireless sensor network OS, such as TinyOS 2.0 with TinyOS 1.x.

  • In industry areas, a lot of factories and process plants need network for processing data acquired from field and for communicating between sensors or actuators or field controllers. Most of the industry networks are based on wired solutions. But, recently, a lot of factories and process plants are moving into wireless solutions since they have some advantages compared with wired one. In this paper we first review the characteristics of wired and wireless network technologies and introduce the new technique called wireless sensor network (WSN). And then we describe the wireless sensor node system designed by us for WSN which has the ability of small size, flexibility and low-power consumption and embedded into the Bar-code scanner to communicate each other. Finally, we conclude this paper by showing that wireless industry network can be constructed with wireless sensor network without large change of traditional wired topologies through experiment using wireless sensor nodes.
