14Wireless Nanosensor Networks and IoNT

Pursuant to our brief discussion on wireless nanosensor networks (WNNs) in Chapter 8: Section 3.8.4, we take up the subject in greater depth in this chapter.

14.1 Evolution of Wireless Nanosensor Concept

A single nanosensor can provide data about its immediate neighborhood within its spatial range of detection. Moreover, it can measure only one or a few interdependent parameters. So, the capability of an individual nanosensor is restricted to a near-distance range and to monitoring one or a few variables. Sometimes, measurements are performed over a larger region of space. The acquisition of knowledge of multiple independent parameters may be indispensable in carrying out complex operations. Then, the ...
