Abstract:

Many of the design challenges for large scale wireless sensor networks (WSN) are well known, among them: scalability, geographic range, infrastructure, cost, longevity, heterogeneity, and mobility. The goal of this study is to examine the current state of the art of WSN and then to apply that knowledge to analyze the feasibility of the U.C. Davis Metanet. The scalability characteristics and design challenges of three proposed networks are examined. A metric is proposed which relates communication behavior and radio technology to express the scaling limits imposed by communication. The feasibilities of the three proposed networks are weighed as a function of the aforementioned design challenges.
