This paper describes a system design approach for a wireless sensor network based application that is to be used to measure temperature and humidity as well as being fitted with a smoke detector. Such a device can be used as an early warning fire detection system in the area of a bush fire or endangered public infrastructure. Once the system has being develop, a mesh network topology will be implemented with the chosen microchip technology with the aim of developing a sophisticated mesh network…

The proposed protocol, Distributed Predictive Tracking, is robust against node or prediction failures which may result in temporary loss of the target and recovers from such scenarios quickly and with very little additional energy use.
Energy-efficient computing for wildlife tracking: design tradeoffs and early experiences with ZebraNet
The goal is to use the least energy, storage, and other resources necessary to maintain a reliable system with a very high `data homing' success rate and it is believed that the domain-centric protocols and energy tradeoffs presented here for ZebraNet will have general applicability in other wireless and sensor applications.
Programming Sensor Networks Using Abstract Regions
The goal is to simplify application design by providing a set of programming primitives for sensor networks that abstract the details of low-level communication, data sharing, and collective operations, and the implementation of abstract regions in the TinyOS programming environment are presented.
System architecture directions for networked sensors
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.
