A Wireless Sensor Network that is Manageable and Really Scales
This wireless sensor network (WSN) was motivated by the need for a manageable and scalable network constructed from relatively inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware. The WSN consumes very little power. The resultant network is in operation in several applications with up to 100 nodes. Simulations have shown excellent performance with 500 nodes. The network features centralized (rather than distributed) control; this aspect is the theme in this short paper.
