In recent times wireless sensors and sensor networks have become a great interest to research, scientific and technological community. Though the sensor networks have been in place for more than a few decades now, the wireless domain has opened up a whole new application spaces of sensors. Wireless sensors and sensor networks are different from traditional wireless networks as well computer networks and therefore pose more challenges to solve such as limited energy, restricted life time, etc. This book intends to illustrate and to collect recent advances in wireless sensors and sensor networks, not as an encyclopedia but as clever support for scientists, students and researchers in order to stimulate exchange and discussions for further developments.

The fusion of basic ideas in mathematics, biology, and chemistry with ongoing improvements in hardware and computation offers the promise of much more sophisticated and accurate sensing capabilities than currently exist. Coupled with the dramatic rise in the need for surveillance in innumerable aspects of our daily lives, brought about by hostile acts deemed unimaginable only a few short years ago, the time is ripe for scientists in the diverse areas of sensing and security to join together in a concerted effort to combat the new brands of terrorism. The contents of this volume can be divided into three broadly defined but interrelated areas:The increasing need for fast and accurate sensing - what is the threat; The scientific underpinnings of the ongoing revolution in sensing; Specific sensing algorithms and techniques.A deep understanding of these three topics, and of their interdependency, is clearly crucial to meet the increasing sophistication of those who wish to do us harm. The contributors to this volume are many of the world's leading experts in the development of new methodologies to both comprehend and predict these threats and to effectively deal with them.The ASI brought together these world leaders from academia, Government and industry, with extensive multidisciplinary backgrounds evidenced by their research and participation in numerous workshops and conferences.
The Vol. 5 of this Book Series contains 22 chapters written by 79 contributors-experts from universities, research centres and industry from 15 countries: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Ukraine and USA. This volume contains information at the cutting edge of sensor research and related topics from the following three areas: Physical Sensors, Sensor Networks and Remote Sensing. Coverage includes current developments in various sensors, sensor instrumentation and applications. In order to offer a fast and easy reading of each topic, every chapter in this volume is independent and self-contained.With the unique combination of information in this volume, the 'Advances in Sensors: Reviews' Book Series will be of value for scientists and engineers in industry and at universities, to sensors developers, distributors, and end users.
The book presents the recent advancements in the area of sensors and sensing technology, specifically in environmental monitoring, structural health monitoring, dielectric, magnetic, electrochemical, ultrasonic, microfluidic, flow, surface acoustic wave, gas, cloud computing and bio-medical. This book will be useful to a variety of readers, namely, Master and PhD degree students, researchers, practitioners, working on sensors and sensing technology. The book will provide an opportunity of a dedicated and a deep approach in order to improve their knowledge in this specific field.
The purpose of WNIS 2009, the 2009 International Conference on Wireless N- works and Information Systems, is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested on information systems and applications in the context of wireless networks and mobile technologies. Information systems and information technology are pervasive in the whole communications field, which is quite vast, encompassing a large number of research topics and applications: from practical issues to the more abstract th- retical aspects of communication; from low level protocols to high-level netwo- ing and applications; from wireless networking technologies to mobile infor- tion systems; many other topics are included in the scope of WNIS 2009. The WNIS 2009 will be held in Shanghai, China, in December 2009. We cordially invite you to attend the 2009 International Conference on Wireless N- works and Information Systems. We are soliciting papers that present recent results, as well as more speculative presentations that discuss research challenges, define new applications, and propose methodologies for evaluating and the road map for achieving the vision of wireless networks and mobile technologies. The WNIS 2009 is co-sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the IEEE Shanghai Section, the Intelligent Information Technology Application Research Association, Hong Kong and Wuhan Institute of Techn- ogy, China. The purpose of the WNIS 2009 is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and government to exchange their research ideas and results and to discuss the state of the art in the areas of the symposium.
Within thirteen self-contained chapters, these volume provides a complete survey of the state-of-the-art research that encompasses all areas of ad hoc and sensor networks. Written by distinguished researchers in the field, these chapters focus on the theoretical and experimental study of advanced research topics involving security and trust, broadcasting and multicasting, power control and energy efficiency, and QoS provisioning. This book is a great reference tool for graduate students, researchers, and mathematicians interested in studying mobile ad hoc and sensor networks.
6th International Symposium on Neural Networks, ISNN 2009 Wuhan, China, May 26-29, 2009 Proceedings
Author: Wen Yu
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
The three volume set LNCS 5551/5552/5553 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Symposium on Neural Networks, ISNN 2009, held in Wuhan, China in May 2009. The 409 revised papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 1.235 submissions. The papers are organized in 20 topical sections on theoretical analysis, stability, time-delay neural networks, machine learning, neural modeling, decision making systems, fuzzy systems and fuzzy neural networks, support vector machines and kernel methods, genetic algorithms, clustering and classification, pattern recognition, intelligent control, optimization, robotics, image processing, signal processing, biomedical applications, fault diagnosis, telecommunication, sensor network and transportation systems, as well as applications.
This is the only book to cover infrastructure aspects of sensor networks in a comprehensive fashion. The only other books on sensor networks do not cover this topic or do so only superficially as part of a less-focussed multi-authored treatment.
