Connectivity Weakness Impacts on Coordination in Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks

  title={Connectivity Weakness Impacts on Coordination in Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks},
  author={Saeed Sedighian and Mohsen Sharifi},
  journal={IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials},
The combination of sensor and actor nodes in wireless sensor actor networks (WSANs) has created new challenges notably in coordination. In this paper, we survey, categorize, and bring into perspective existing researches on weak connectivity and its impacts on coordination ranging from a node failure to disability of actor nodes to communicate with other actors permanently. We present challenges in each category alongside existing provisions and approaches in the context of the proposed… CONTINUE READING
