Chapter 3: Smart Sensing Architectures > 3.3 Network Formation

3.3 Network Formation

There are many reasons to believe that sensor systems benefit from interconnection, clustering and communications with each other as well as with one or more centralised controllers and databases. In nature, however, they tend not to be committed to following any particular formation. To this effect, they generally benefit from some flexibility to suit sensor applications, being in the form of classic WSN, wired or mix and match configurations, which stem from their task style data seeking and collection behaviour rather than a telecom style service requirement.

Due to unpredictable resource hungry behavioural and other complexities of wireless networking the idea of ad hoc networking has been proposed so that they break away from structured traditional networking into a resource conservative style relaying form of connecting the sensors and clusters together. Then, in order to make use of well-established dominating networking technology we rather use ‘unstructured networking’ than ‘networking’ whenever possible. Therefore, DSS applications under unstructured networking approach take immensely versatile networking topologies.
