Sensor networks have enabled a range of applications where the objective is to observe an environment and, collect information about the observed phenomena or events. In many cases, appropriate actions must be taken upon the occurrence of a given event (e.g., switching the light of a room off when it has been empty for more than five minutes or switching the light on when the presence of a human is detected). This has led to the emergence of a new generation of sensor networks, called sensor–actuator networks (SANETs), that have sensor nodes and actuator nodes.11 Sensors and actuators communicate and collaborate to perform distributed sensing and acting tasks. Sensors gather information about the physical world while actuators make decisions and perform actions that affect the environment [3]. Actuators are able to change parameters in their environment (e.g., temperature, light) as well as their intrinsic properties (e.g., location, speed, volume). Applications of SANETs...
