Libelium Smart World :Wireless Sensors for Smart Cities


Wireless sensor network (WSN) :

Distributed autnomus sensors to monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temprature, pressure, sound etc. and to cooperatively pass their data through the network to a main location.

  • The development of wireless sensor networks was motivated by military applications such as battlefield surveillance; today such networks are used in many industrial and consumer applications, such as industrial process monitoring and control, machine health monitoring, and so on.
