Abstract :
Wireless Sensor Network is a network with a number of sensor nodes deployed in a geographical area. These nodes are deployed to various kinds of environmental conditions like humidity, noise, temperature etc. The sensors are used for collecting data related to varying environmental conditions where they are deployed in. The primary constraint in a WSN is energy. Since the sensor nodes are battery operated, collecting and transmitting data will cost a lot of energy resources. Therefore, to maximize the lifetime of sensor networks, aggressive energy optimization techniques have to be used for ensuring that energy is conserved for the sensor nodes. This paper discusses about wireless sensor network, its architecture, data aggregation or fusion related algorithms.
