Updating software in wireless sensor networks a survey
She is currently a Ph D candidate in the Department of Computer Science at University of California, Davis.Her current research interests include energy conservation, localization, clustering, target tracking and network survivability in wireless sensor networks.The need for over-the-air updates is driven both by the scale of deployments, and by the remoteness and inaccessibility of sensor nodes.This need has been recognized since the early days of sensor networks, and research results from the related areas of mobile networking and distributed systems have been applied to this area.Wireless Sensor Networks are moving out of the laboratory and into the field.For a number of reasons there is often a need to update sensor node software, or node configuration, after deployment.
However, they overlook transmission power effect on the energy-efficiency and the interference problem.
In wireless sensor networks, the necessity of network programming becomes more and more important due to the inaccessibility of the sensor nodes.
Because the network programming produces a large amount of data, it consumes a great deal of energy and causes the network to suffer from much interference.
