Manuscript Abstract
Frontiers of Supercomputing (FoS) is an ICSES Transactions whose one of the focuses is on emerging trends in networking and communication area of the research. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) emerges around 1950s and with advancement in sensor based technology has upgraded its use in nearly all parts of life of the current world. WSN are being used for multiple applications like disaster management, medical, military application, electricity and water management, road safety and management, biological fields, construction, home automation, air traffic control, asset management, habitat monitoring and sensing, power system, transportation, gas monitoring and several other purposes. WSN technology is being used for sensor to sensor communication for collecting and processing of various environmental parameters using these sensors. WSN consists of five-layered architecture which consist of physical layer, data link layer, network layer, transport layer and application layer. The working of each layer is similar as that of TCP/IP model but with difference in types of protocols and application being used for WSN technology. Taking a view of type of sensors in WSN, they are micro electro mechanical sensors (MEMS), CMOS based sensors and LED based sensors. The usage of sensors depends on type of applications where they can be used. WSN units can be categorized into components like microcontroller, transceiver, sensors, memory and battery. Based on type of usage of WSN there can be underground WSN, underwater WSN, terrestrial WSN, multimedia WSN or mobile WSN.
