This work focuses on the analysis of fundamental issues which have to be considered in order to obtain voice from a wireless sensor network (WSN). The latter is assumed to be constituted by MicaZ wireless sensor nodes. Problems related to the transport of an audio signal through a wireless channel and sensor nodes are thus analyzed, and a project for an audio surveillance system is presented.
