The power of wireless sensor networks (WSN) lies in the ability to deploy large numbers of tiny nodes that assemble and configure themselves. Usage scenarios for these devices range from real-time tracking, to monitoring of environmental conditions, to Military applications, to monitoring of the health of structures or equipment. There is extensive research in the development of new algorithms for data aggregation ,ad hoc routing, and distributed signal processing in the context of wireless sensor networks. As the algorithms and protocols for wireless sensor network are developed, they must be supported by a low-power, efficient and flexible hardware platform. This book describes systematic performance study of two state-of-the-art dynamic routing protocols for WSN, the Dynamic Source Routing protocol (DSR) and the Ad Hoc On-Demand DistanceVector protocol (AODV).
