Reducing the energy consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is an important goal, sought to extend the life-expectancy of the networks. One of the main problems in actual implementation is their inherently limited life-span, due to the (usually) not field-replaceable energy source. The energy consumption is due to the data and management(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSN) are practical implementations of distributed computing ad-hoc wireless networks. Typically empowered with scarce energy resources and limited computing power, they are mainly used for in situ data acquisition and monitoring of the deployment area. As such, they are susceptible to various forms of jamming, at the physical and(More)
This position paper presents some human-computer interaction (HCI)-related issues in CMC. The expressed views are based on personal experience as an educator of K-12 classes. The following questions are raised: relevance of icons, metaphors as representations of known reality, adaptability of World Wide Web (WWW) user interface to individual needs. I(More)
