This unit explores the recent advances in the area of wireless networking for sensory devices. There have been developments in both sensing and wireless networking at a remarkable rate in the past few years. Modern day requirements have fuelled the amalgamation of these traditionally separate technologies and resulted widespread commercial and research interest in the subsequent, rapidly emerging area of wireless sensor networks. This unit will look at the underlying issues related to implementations in the combined area such as localization and network design. Commercially available systems will be introduced and the overall unit will be presented in a cohesive and application oriented manner.
