Book on Wireless Sensor Network Applications

31st December 2010

I recently edited a book titled "Wireless Sensor Networks: Application-Centric Design". It is an open-access book, meaning that you can download and read it for free, by following the link below. My contribution (the preface) can also be downloaded in isolation from our ePrints server, at http://eprints.ecs.soton.ac.uk/21705/.

This book is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all WSN applications and deployments to date. Instead, it is a collection of state-of-the-art research papers discussing current applications and deployment experiences, but also the communication and data processing technologies that are fundamental in further developing solutions to applications. Whilst a common foundation is retained through all chapters, this book contains a broad array of often differing interpretations, configurations and limitations of WSNs, and this highlights the diversity of this ever-changing research area. The chapters have been categorised into three distinct sections: applications and case studies, communication and networking, and information and data processing. The readership of this book is intended to be postgraduate/postdoctoral researchers and professional engineers, though some of the chapters may be of relevance to interested master's level students.

This morning I was contacted by a journalist from 'The Engineer' magazine, who was writing a piece about research at Bristol University on the use of ultrasound as a tactile technology. The technology, which I saw demonstrated at a conference a few years ago, uses inaudible ultrasound waves to give the sensation of touch to the fingertips, and by using an array of transducers, can target the sensation at particular locations. My comments on the technology included: "'Touchless haptics is prob... [more]
