Highlights and Novelties
Nowadays, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) appear in numerous applications in both civil and military. The applications focus on either event detection, observation or sensing data collection. With the rapid growth of potential applications, it’s believed that the networks support the most promising technologies for the future applications. The sensors have some constraints with saving energy consumption in the networks since they usually have pre-charged batteries while working in a sensing area. So, choosing appropriate technologies for such networks to be able to work well with some application should be considered and advised. In this survey, a presentation of some prominent applications in different fields such as: military, agriculture, healthcare system, environment monitoring, etc. is provided. In addition, an overview of wireless communication technologies used in WSNs will be addressed in the next part of this survey. We tend to specify some highlight wireless technologies that most appropriate for a WSNs like: ZigBee, Bluetooth, Wireless HART, ISA100.11a, and some other wireless technologies wide used to make a comparison among their characteristics. We further provide suggestions for utilizing technologies in different applications for optimal purposes.
