NESL Technical Report #: 2008-8-3
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks have proven useful for applications in diverse domains. The challenges of scale and resource constraints posed by these systems have led to development of novel network protocols and services, but their focus has been on traditional metrics of quality of service of network data transport. Rather, sensor networks require combining networking quality of service concerns with metrics of quality and integrity of sensor data sources and performance of sensor fusion algorithms. We describe how network protocols, data integrity management, and sensor fusion algorithms can be design to cooperatively optimize the "Quality of Information" returned by a sensor network.
