A Review on Wireless Sensor Network

Amanjot Singh Toor, A.K. Jain


Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) being a network of devices, denoted as nodes, facilitates monitoring of sensitive data and controlling of physical environmental conditions (temperature, pollution, sound etc) from remote locations. This paper surveys in detail about Wireless Sensor Networks.
