Review - Connecting the Physical World with Pervasive Networks
TLDR
By presenting questions and discussion on the challenges of integrating the physical world and pervasive networks the researchers wish to provoke future research to achieve a common vision.
Sensor networks: an overview
TLDR
A sensor network can provide access to information anytime, anywhere by collecting, processing, analyzing and disseminating data, and actively participates in creating a smart environment.

    Fifth Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom'07)
  • 2007
TLDR
This paper reports on the communication model, an initial implementation, and its performance in varying scenarios, and introduces scenes, which applications create based on their communication requirements, abstract properties of the underlying network communication, and property of the physical environment.
A framework for sensor networks with multiple owners
A framework for sensor networks with multiple owners develops a mechanism for assured and controlled access to sensor assets owned and maintained by disparate organizations. The framework addresses
Optical wireless communication in distributed sensor networks
TLDR
This work explores the potential and limitations of using optical wireless communication systems, that use light beams as carriers to implement miniaturized, low-power sensor networks with unique features.

Using Existing Infrastructure as Support for Wireless Sensor Networks
TLDR
This paper extends LEACH, a well-known TDMA cluster-based sensor network architecture, to use asymmetric communication, which makes it possible to scale up the network size beyond what is feasible with LEACH and its variants LEACH-C and LEach-F.
Biologically Inspired Models for Sensor Network Design
TLDR
The purposes, requirements and challenges of creating pervasive networks of devices that have sensor technology and embedded computation so concepts can be taken from them to design appropriate models for how sensor networks could work are discussed.
Literature Survey on Wireless Sensor Networks

Building efficient wireless sensor networks with low-level naming
TLDR
This paper investigates the naming of nodes for low-level communication in distributed systems that leverages topological location (such as node addresses) and is independent of any application.
Location Systems for Ubiquitous Computing
TLDR
This survey and taxonomy of location systems for mobile-computing applications describes a spectrum of current products and explores the latest in the field to help developers of location-aware applications better evaluate their options when choosing a location-sensing system.
Information-driven dynamic sensor collaboration
TLDR
The main idea is for a network to determine participants in a "sensor collaboration" by dynamically optimizing the information utility of data for a given cost of communication and computation.
Next century challenges: scalable coordination in sensor networks
TLDR
This paper believes that localized algorithms (in which simple local node behavior achieves a desired global objective) may be necessary for sensor network coordination.
Building efficient wireless sensor networks with low-level naming
TLDR
This paper is the first description of the software architecture that supports named data and in- network processing in an operational, multi-application sensor-network and shows that approaches such as in-network aggregation and nested queries can significantly affect network traffic.
Habitat monitoring: application driver for wireless communications technology
TLDR
This work proposes a tiered system architecture in which data collected at numerous, inexpensive sensor nodes is filtered by local processing on its way through to larger, more capable and more expensive nodes.
System architecture directions for networked sensors
TLDR
Key requirements are identified, a small device is developed that is representative of the class, a tiny event-driven operating system is designed, and it is shown that it provides support for efficient modularity and concurrency-intensive operation.
Detection, classification, and tracking of targets
TLDR
The key ideas behind the CSP algorithms for distributed sensor networks being developed at the University of Wisconsin (UW) are described and the approach to tracking multiple targets that necessarily requires classification techniques becomes a reality.

Emerging challenges: Mobile networking for “Smart Dust”
TLDR
This work reviews the key elements of the emergent technology of “Smart Dust” and outlines the research challenges they present to the mobile networking and systems community, which must provide coherent connectivity to large numbers of mobile network nodes co-located within a small volume.
