Preface

Human sensing is one way of collecting information, acquiring knowledge, and making reliable decisions. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) imitate this human intelligence capability, but on a wider distributed scale, with faster, cheaper, and more effective ways that can be used for different applications.

As the subject is relatively recent and enjoying fast development, we thought that the book should be written by researchers and experts in the field. We called on those experts to contribute to the book by writing chapters in their areas of expertise. Our role was to organize the flow of knowledge ...
