Energy consumption in Wireless Sensor Networks

The thesis is delivered (16.11.2010).

Thesis was updated taking into consideration a programming mistake.

Tasks Detailed Work

Further steps

  • literature review

Sensors deliver data, which can contribute to decision making. However, most of the sensor data are _event based_, and thus not available in the Internet service world. The goal of this practical work is on sensor integration into the mobile device, and how these services can be integrated into an Internet service world. Applications area cover a.o. the measurements of air quality and position of the measurements. Further information from Josef Noll, (contact info)

Suggested TOC

Title page, abstract, ...

  • 1. Introduction, containing: short intro into the area of sensor network, virtualization and integration, what is happening
    • 1.1 Motivation, containing: what triggered me to write about what I'm writing about
    • 1.2 problem - 0ne paragaph about the problem you are going to tackle
    • 1.3 Gaol - goal of you thesis in one paragraph.
    • 1.4 Research Mothed - describe your hypothesis ans which research question you are going to solve. for example: virtualization will solve the sensor integration wth the internet world.
    • 1.5 Limitations - donot describe them now. you will describe them after writing your thesis
    • 1.6 thesis overview - describe the structure of thesis means that what you will describe in which chapter. for example satate of art is described in chapter 2.
  • 2. Scenario, optional chapter for explaining some use cases
    • 2.1 user scenario, (bad name, needs something bedre)
    • 2.2 Requirements/Technological challenges
  • 3. State-of-the art/Analysis of technology, structure your content after hardware/SW (or other domains). Describe which technologies might be used to answer the challenges, and how they can answer the challenges
    • 3.1 survay of sensor networks and sensor nodes
    • 3.2 survay of virtualization technology
    • 3.3 survay of integration technologies
