Main focus

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)s are built of  low cost resource constraint devices and are an exciting development with very large potential to have a significant beneficial impact on every aspect of our lives.With the advent of the Future Internet or the Internet of things wireless sensor networks (WSN) are becoming an essential part of the Internet. This development can be seen in several application domains. Google Maps already provides information stemming from sensors. The Microsoft project SensorMap aims at an easy integration of wireless sensor networks into the Internet. Other application domains such as factory automation are more and more considering wireless sensor network as part of their networks. Even in the area of Homeland security wireless sensor networks are regarded as a potential means to facilitate monitoring of wide area systems such as country borders, electricity lines etc.


What is needed to kick offthe development and exploitation of WSNs are solutions for medium and large scale wireless sensor networks integrating


  • Comprehensive security means
  • Solutions guaranteeing dependability
  • Energy efficient protocols
  • Ease of use design tools
