Special Issue on Reactive Sensor Networks


A common assumption in Wireless Sensor Networks is that they comprise resource-constrained static nodes which sense their environment and then send their measurements to a central base station through mutihop routing. Soon, it was realized that this network organization leads to rapid energy exhaustion of sensors around the base station since these nodes should relay all the traffic destined for the base station.
In addition, the passive nature of static sensors which can only sense and are unable to move is not always helpful in target-tracking scenarios or in cases where real-time action is necessary for handling emergency situations. Apparently, a reactive (dynamic) behavior from these networks would be effective for dealing with a number of changing operational conditions (e.g. node failures, energy exhaustion in some nodes) or with real-time events.

This Special Issue will focus on all forms of reactive behavior that can be incorporated in the functionality of a Wireless Sensor Network and will also
identify new possibilities, opportunities and challenges deriving from this new paradigm. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Sink mobility in Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless Sensor Actuator Networks
Wireless Sensor Networks with mobile sensors
Re-tasking in Wireless Sensor Networks
Mobile agent based solutions in Wireless Sensor Networks
Node redeployment techniques in Wireless Sensor Networks for improved connectivity and/or coverage
Re-clustering techniques in Wireless Sensor Networks
Dynamic MAC and routing protocols in Wireless Sensor Networks for increased network lifetime
Reactive methods in Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks
Reactive methods for target tracking in Wireless Sensor Networks
Dynamic techniques for data aggregation/fusion in Wireless Sensor Networks
Security, trust and privacy in Reactive Sensor Networks
