Journal Title:Journal of Chemical, Biological and physical sciences

A wireless ad-hoc network is a self-configuring network made up of mobile hosts which are connected by wireless links forming an arbitrary topology. Basically, a wireless sensor network consists of spatially distributed autonomous sensors deployed to co-operatively monitor certain physical or environmental conditions such as temperature sound, vibration, pressure, motion or pollutants etc [1]. Generally, this work presents an overview of wireless ad-hoc sensor networks (WASNs) detailing the basic goals and requirements for setting up such a network. The design approaches namely protocol-based and algorithmbased approaches for developing WASNs were also discussed. We also highlighted the various operating systems now available for WASNs. Example applications of wireless sensor networks were also presented.
