Paper Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have emerged as means of providing automated monitoring, target tracking, and intrusion detection. Solar-powered WSNs that adopt innovative sensors with low power consumption and forefront networking technologies can provide rapidly deployable situational awareness and effective security control at the border at low cost. In our paper, we introduce the prototype of our new solar-powered WSN platform for Border Security. We consider practical issues in WSNs, including sensing environment classification, survivability under harsh weather conditions, and efficient solar energy harvesting. Experimental results demonstrate the performance of our new solar-powered WSN.
