Reliability in Wireless Sensor Networks for Environment Monitoring



Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have been increasingly used in society and industrial environments. However, there are still several challenges in developing applications as well as in guaranteeing their operation in critical environments. There are many factors that contribute to these challenges, including the constraints and limitations of the sensor nodes, the noisy and interference environments, and the differences between WSNs and traditional networks. The main objective of this paper is to describe the project developed in the Department of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Networks of Escuela Polite?cnica Nacional in Ecuador to use reliable solutions of WSNs to environmental monitoring as an alternative to conventional solutions.
