Using Wireless Sensor Networks to Enable Internet of Things

Abstract

The last few decades have witnessed major evolution in communication networks that impacted the mere essence of human life. Continents that are oceans apart, became just a phone call away and globalization emerged deriving knowledge sharing and culture integration. The emergence of communication networks, wired and wireless, have enabled a wide spectrum of applications in all areas of life, e.g., business solutions, remote sensing, satellite communications, healthcare applications, mobile and cellular networks, and multimedia sharing, to name a few. Nowadays, human connectivity is seen as a necessity and a right. The demand for low-cost wireless communications with high speed and ubiquitous connectivity continues to increase rapidly. Internet of Things (IoT) is a recent communication paradigm such that all objects are connected to the Internet enabling such objects to communicate with one another and with the users, becoming an integral part of the Internet. IoT will provide access, interaction, and control to a wide variety of devices to facilitate application, such as home automation, industrial automation, medical aids, mobile healthcare, elderly assistance, intelligent energy management and smart grids, automotive, traffic management, and many others. These ubiquitous networks define a new set of challenges, especially due to their scale.
