In wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs), a group of sensors and actors are connected by a wireless medium to perform distributed sensing and acting tasks. Sensors usually gather information in an event area and pass it on to actors, which are resource-rich devices that make decisions and perform necessary actions. Therefore, it is vital to maintain connections between sensors and actors for effective sensor- actor coordination. In this paper, we first define several sensor- actor… 
Connectivity Weakness Impacts on Coordination in Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks
