Wireless Sensor Networks Design for Deployment -- Learning from Deployment Experience -- Designing for Deployment -- Wireless Sensor Network Applications Case Studies -- Volcano Monitoring: Addressing Data Quality Through Iterative Deployment -- VoxNet: Reducing Latency in High Data Rate Applications -- Failure Is Inevitable: The Trade-off Between Missing Data and Maintenance -- Cane Toad Monitoring: Data Reduction in a High Rate Application -- ExScal: Dealing with Scale -- Glacier Monitoring: Deploying Custom Hardware in Harsh Environments -- Adding the Human Element: Experience with a Wireless Patient Monitoring System.

Wireless Sensor Networks: Deployments and Design Frameworks takes a practical, experience driven view of wireless embedded networked sensing systems, providing a comprehensive discussion of design and deployment problems and guidance for future development. The book: -Reviews the state of the art with respect to practical WSNs and their adoption -Presents seven notable real-life WSN design/deployment case studies -Provides informed, systematic support towards new application design and implementation -Synthesizes strategies for design and deployment suitable for both academia and industry -Highlights key issues and trade-offs in the WSN design space Wireless Sensor Networks: Deployments and Design Frameworks will help the practitioner approach the design of WSN-oriented application systems from an informed standpoint. To be successful in development and deployment of WSNs, it is important to build upon the past achievements and experiences of others, and to follow examples of good design; this book enables both.
