To be Published by CRC Press, USA


Editors: Mubashir Husain Rehmani and Al-Sakib Khan Pathan





With the advancement of technology and miniaturization of electronic devices, applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) can be seen in diverse areas of our life. In addition to this, these WSNs gained lot of attention from both the research community and the industry, thus, making them available easily in the market. Extensive research work, easy availability and cheap cost, makes them appropriate to use in futuristic applications as well. Therefore, WSNs are becoming an essential component for future communication technologies. For instance, whether we talk about Internet of Things, Smart Cities or Cyber Physical Systems, one can find the role of WSNs in these technologies. However, with these diverse application and underlying communication architectures, new research challenges are also arises. In this context, we plan to edit a book on Emerging Communication Technologies based on Wireless Sensor Network, which gives a broader picture on the applications, architecture, challenges, and open research directions in this area. In addition, the proposed publication will serve as a single source of reference for acquiring the knowledge on emerging WSNs based communication technologies. The topics should cover the following and other related issues but not limited to:

- Emerging Communication Technologies based on Wireless Sensor Networks like:

- WSNs and Cloud Computing;

- WSNs and Smart Cities;

- Machine to Machine Networks and WSNs;

- Use of WSNs in Smart Grid;

- Cyber Physical Systems and WSNs;

- Phy, Mac, Network and Higher Layer for WSNs based communication technologies;

- Developments, Issues, and Open Areas;

- Futuristic Applications based on WSNs;
