consist of hundreds of thousands of small and cost effective sensor nodes. Sensor nodes are used to sense the environmental or physiological parameters like temperature, pressure, etc. For the connectivity of the sensor nodes, they use wireless transceiver to send and receive the inter-node signals. Sensor nodes, because connect their selves wirelessly, use routing process to route the packet to make them reach from source to destination. These sensor nodes run on batteries and they carry a…
