About this book


This book collects very recent results in the realm of sensor networking. In particular, it links the theory of sensor networking with practical and implementation aspects. Such, it highlights how sensor networking represents a very interesting research/application area, allowing a researcher to apply his theories and a practitioner to "see" the theories behind his/her used technologies.
