 Protocols for Emerging Wireless Sensor Networks


A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is mostly used to sense and communicate the sensed data. With an ever increasing advancement in hardware and software for WSNs, the WSNs are being actively used in different scenarios, e.g., smart cities, Internet of things, intelligent transportation, video-surveillance, infrastructure monitoring, security, disaster control, industrial control, and assisted living to name, but a few. Emerging types of WSNs have diverse application domains, therefore these networks are required to cope with heterogeneous set of applications. E.g., a network deployed to monitor an industrial process needs to react in a real-time manner to ensure proper functionality of the industrial process, a network deployed for video-surveillance mostly needs to provide soft end-to-end delay and reliability guarantees, and may be at the same time the network is required to provide classic sensing and reporting facility. Moreover, a single network may be required to provide the different kinds of mentioned services. Therefore, using the same type of protocols at the different layer of the networking protocol stack for the heterogeneous set of applications, may not help to realize the vision of the emerging types of WSNs. Hence, for   the emerging types of WSNs, a progress is required in different types of protocols to effectively handle and manage heterogeneous set of applications.


Researchers and experts are invited to contribute original research articles as well as review articles in realizing the vision of the emerging WSNs through different set of protocols. We solicited research and review papers in the following areas for the emerging types of WSNs, but are not limited to:


  • Resource management

  • Quality of Service protocols for real-time multimedia and scalar data

  • MAC protocols

  • Routing protocols

  • Transport layer protocols

  • New Application Layer protocols

  • Location tracking

  • Network architecture

  • Energy management

  • Network and protocolsí security

  • Distributed scheduling

  • Seamless integration with the Internet

  • Mobility

  • Task/flow admission control


About journal:


Sensors & Transducers is established, international, peer-reviewed, open access journal (print and electronic). It provides the best platform for the researchers and scientist worldwide to exchange their latest findings and results in science and technology of physical, chemical sensors and biosensors. The journal publishes original results of scientific and research works related to strategic and applied studies in all aspects of sensors: reviews, regular research and application specific papers, and short notes. In comparison with other sensors related journals, which are mainly focused on technological aspects and sensing principles, the Sensors & Transducers journal significantly contributes in areas, which are not adequately addressed in other journals, namely: frequency (period), duty-cycle, time-interval, PWM, phase-shift, pulse number output sensors and transducers; sensor systems;  digital, smart, intelligent sensors and systems designs; signal processing and ADC in sensor systems; advanced sensor fusion; sensor networks; applications, etc. By this way the journal significantly enriches the appropriate databases of knowledge.


Sensors & Transducers journal has a very high publicity. It is indexed and abstracted very quickly by Chemical Abstracts, EBSCO Publishing, IndexCopernicus Journals Master List (ICV=6.13 in 2011), Open J-Gate, ProQuest Science Journals, CAS Source Index (CASSI), Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, Scirus, Google Scholar, etc. Since 2011 to 2014 Sensors & Transducers journal was covered and indexed by EI Compendex (CPX) index (including a Scopus, Embase, Engineering Village and Reaxys) in Elsevier products. The journal is included in the IFSA List of Recommended Journals (up-dated 9.12.2014), which contains only the best, established sensors related journals. The global Impact Factor of the journal is 0.705 (2013).
