When wireless sensor networks (WSN) work in wild environments, nearby receivers are often hard to build. How to receive data from WSN is a big problem. In this article, we use a beamforming method to establish a wireless communication link between WSN and far-field receiver by using WSN nodes as antenna array elements. We build up a model of randomly distributed 2-dimensional antenna array and propose a convenient method to synthesize it with an equivalent 1-dimensional array. We also propose a… CONTINUE READING
