Wireless sensor networks are used in diverse applications. They may be placed in buildings or installed in outdoor, urban, spaces for monitoring energy consumption, energy production, energy stores (such as boilers, batteries, etc.), environmental conditions, etc. Wireless sensor networks can be used in both individual and commercial premises. They are widely used in food industries, supermarkets, restaurants, hotels and offices. Based on the safe, trustworthy wireless communication standards, a WSN provides convenient connectivity and communication with no use of wires.
They can be used in storage rooms, containers, greenhouses, etc. for measuring process conditions (temperature, humidity), checking the product status or the production process, and assisting in the identification of defective material. Also, to detect the presence of pollutants such as CO, formaldehyde, etc.
Just as sensors can be applied anywhere, sensor networks can address virtually any case where data need to be collected from several points.
