Traffic Analysis & Modeling in Wireless Sensor Networks and Their Applications on Network Optimization and Anomaly Detection

Qinghua Wang


Wireless sensor network (WSN) has emerged as a promising technology thanks to the recent advances in electronics, networking, and information technologies. However, there is still a great deal of additional research required before it finally becomes a mature technology. This article concentrates on three factors which are holding back the development of WSNs. Firstly, there is a lack of traffic analysis & modeling for WSNs. Secondly, network optimization for WSNs needs more investigation. Thirdly, the development of anomaly detection techniques for WSNs remains a seldom touched area. Among these three factors, the understanding regarding the traffic dynamics within WSNs provide a basis for further works on network optimization and anomaly detection for WSNs.
