Wireless Sensor Network Senior Design Projects in Computer Engineering Program Abstract Recent, advances in wireless networks and electronics have led to the emergence of Wireless Sensor networks (WSNs). These networks consist of small battery–powered motors with limited computation and radio communication capabilities. Each sensor in a sensor network consists of three subsystems: the sensor subsystem which senses the environment, the processing subsystem which performs local computations on the sensed data, and the communication subsystem which is responsible for message exchanges with neighboring sensors. WSNs comprise tiny wireless computers that sense, process, and communicate environmental stimuli, including temperature, light, and vibration. WSN is an active area of research with numerous applications. It is an environment that enables communications with sensors through the microcontroller. The sensor network environment is being applied in areas including environmental control and controlling of devices at home. Educational excellence requires exposing students to the current edge of research. To ensure that student projects are along the same trajectory that the industry is moving, educators must continually introduce emerging techniques, practices, and applications into the curriculum. The field of wireless sensor networks is growing rapidly, and there is increasing interest in providing students with a foundation in the area. It is crucial that the emerging field of wireless sensor networks be integrated into the computer science and engineering curriculums. This paper will present several senior design projects in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks.
