Wireless Sensor Network (WSN)
Today, smart grid, smart homes, smart water networks, intelligent transportation, are infrastructure systems that connect our world more than we ever thought possible.
The common vision of such systems is usually associated with one single concept, the internet of things (IoT), where through the use of sensors, the entire physical infrastructure is closely coupled with information and communication technologies; where intelligent monitoring and management can be achieved via the usage of networked embedded devices.
In such a sophisticated dynamic system, devices are interconnected to transmit useful measurement information and control instructions via distributed sensor networks.
A wireless sensor network (WSN) is a network formed by a large number of sensor nodes where each node is equipped with a sensor to detect physical phenomena such as light, heat, pressure, etc.
WSNs are regarded as a revolutionary information gathering method to build the information and communication system which
will greatly improve the reliability and efficiency of infrastructure systems.
Compared with the wired solution, WSNs feature easier deployment and better fl exibility of devices. With the rapid technological development of sensors, WSNs will become the key technology for IoT.
“Wearables will become the world’s best-selling consumer electronics product after smartphones,” CNBC reports, citing forecasts by market research firm Euromonitor.
Autonomous or smart wearables are projected to exceed 305 million units in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate of 55 percent.
71% of those aged 16 to 24 want wearable tech.
Projected sales figures for autonomous wearables are well above laptops and televisions. Smartphones will remain dominant in the consumer market, with projected sales to top 1.6 billion units in 2020.
Autonomous wearables, such as smart watches and smart glasses and other sense gearware devics refer to technology capable of running third-party applications. Typically, they have built-in connectivity features and advanced processing capabilities.
In contrast, passive or basic wearables can only provide biometric data about users.
