Book Description :

Wireless Underground Sensor Network (WUSN) is an active research topic for the past decade. WUSN technologies have a wide range of applications in the field of agricultural and geological monitoring. Traditional sensing network techniques have limited range, lack of concealment, and sometimes require data to be manually retrieved. Recent advancements in Low Power Wide Area Networking (LPWAN) technologies promise long range, low power and lost cost with a compromise of a low data rate. Emerging LPWAN technologies such as Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN), SigFox and NarrowBand-Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT) all offer potential WUSN solutions where the end devicescan be fully buried and connected with sensors and data can be sent to the gateway wirelessly in real time and then forwarded to a central network server.With LoRaWAN chosen to be the most balanced solution for WUSN amongst the emerging LPWAN technologies, in term of availability, flexibility and performance, LoRaWAN WUSN Simulator (LWS), was developed. To simulate the signal propagation in an underground environment, different soil path loss models were compared, and a modified Friis model was chosen to be implemented in LWS. A field experiment was also conducted to evaluate the accuracy of the theoretical path loss model. LWS is also capable of simulating collision behaviours of LoRa Physical Layer and Medium Access Layer (MAC) layer. The effect of regional duty cycle regulation is also examined in detail to evaluate how it introduces congestion in the network. The simulation results showed that the regional duty cycle restriction significantly reduces the network data extraction rate if the application requires acknowledgements for all or the majority of end-devices. However, for agricultural applications where the end-devices do not require frequent acknowledgements from the network server, the network is still scalable with the duty cycle restriction. Simulation results also showed that a LoRaWAN-based WUSN network is capable of having a network coverage in the multi-kilometres range with a burial depth in the topsoil range of less than 50 cm. This research has demonstrated the potential of LoRaWAN in agriculture WUSN with LWS being a versatile pre-deployment analysis tool.

Book Description :

During the last one and a half decades, wireless sensor networks have witnessed significant growth and tremendous development in both academia and industry. A large number of researchers, including computer scientists and engineers, have been interested in solving challenging problems that span all the layers of the protocol stack of sensor networking systems. Several venues, such as journals, conferences, and workshops, have been launched to cover innovative research and practice in this promising and rapidly advancing field. Because of these trends, I thought it would be beneficial to provide our sensor networks community with a comprehensive reference on as much of the findings as possible on a variety of topics in wireless sensor networks. As this area of research is in continuous progress, it does not seem to be a reasonable solution to keep delaying the publication of such reference any more. This book relates to the second volume and focuses on the advanced topics and applications of wireless sensor networks. Our rationale is that the second volume has all application-specific and non-conventional sensor networks, emerging techniques and advanced topics that are not as matured as what is covered in the first volume. Thus, the second volume deals with three-dimensional, underground, underwater, body-mounted, and societal networks. Following Donald E. Knuth’s above-quoted elegant strategy to focus on several important fields (The Art of Computer Programming: Fundamental Algorithms, 1997), all the book chapters in this volume include up-to-date research work spanning various topics, such as stochastic modeling, barrier and spatiotemporal coverage, tracking, estimation, counting, coverage and localization in three-dimensional sensor networks, topology control and routing in three-dimensional sensor networks, underground and underwater sensor networks, multimedia and body sensor networks, and social sensing. Most of these major topics can be covered in an advanced course on wireless sensor networks. This book will be an excellent source of information for graduate students majoring in computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, or any related discipline. Furthermore, computer scientists, researchers, and practitioners in both academia and industry will find this book useful and interesting.
