Detection of unauthorized vehicle movement across the forest boundary using wireless sensor networks
Wireless sensor network is a collection of small sensor nodes. These nodes consist of sensing, communication and computation capability that attracts a large number of applications. Wireless sensor networks are deployed for a particular application on hand and are therefore application-specific in nature. An effort has been made in this thesis work to understand the true potential of such networks by studying the on-going work in this field. A novel application has been identified that would benefit from the deployment of such network. Presence of unauthorized vehicle inside the forest premises can be detected and its information can be made available to the forest officials. Sensor network architecture has been designed for the application. Importance of placement of sensor nodes and scheduling the sensor nodes to achieve longer lifetime are also discussed. Simulation results show how the system behaves under various conditions.
