Sensor systems have been used in military, industrial, and medical applications for many years.

Sensor networks can observe the sensing environment at a close range and thus have many advantages, such as ability to monitor smallest details, proximity to places which are difficult to reach by humans, for example difficult terrain or hazardous environment. The major limitations of sensors are their limited power supply, limited communication bandwidth and range, and limited computation ability and memory capacity. Data transmission consumes a large percentage of energy; reducing the amount of data transmitted is the primary focus of data processing.

These signals are converted to digital signals by the ADC, and then sent into the processing unit. The processing unit instructs the sensor node to carry out the assigned sensing tasks and manages the sensor node’s collaboration with the other nodes.
