News / Zadorozhny co-edits volume on wireless sensor network technologies

Vladimir Zadorozhny, Associate Professor at the iSchool, is a co-editor of the recently-published volume, Wireless Sensor Network Technologies for the Information Explosion Era. The publication, aimed at both researchers and students, was co-edited by Takahiro Hara (Associate Professor, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at Osaka University) and Erik Buchmann (Institute for Program Structures and Data Organization, Universität Karlsruhe). It is part of a series, “Studies in Computational Intelligence,” which is a venue for new developments and advances in the various areas of computational intelligence. 

The book examines the theoretical and practical aspects of creating Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) that will be able to meet the need for staggering amounts of data storage. Recently, different types of WSNs have been deployed, resulting in an increase in the amount of information generated by wireless sensors. This surge in the volume of information produced calls for novel data processing and communication techniques for WSNs. This book reviews the technical issues in deploying WSNs, the integration of multiple WSNs, and the development of new WSN systems and test beds. Topics covered range from energy-efficient task routing to integration of heterogeneous sensor nodes through data stream management, to applying overlay networks to ubiquitous sensor management.

The volume is published by Springer. More details are available here.
