Summary: Wireless sensor and communication networks with fixed and mobile nodes are rapidly becoming essential technologies for hostile environmental monitoring, battlefield surveillance and precision agriculture. However, due to the complexities associated with interconnected design issues involving sensors, autonomous vehicles and communication protocols, even very simple networks have proven to be difficult to design. This project proposes to intelligently employ higher capabilities of mobile nodes and develop methods for rapid deployment, maintenance and routing that are aware of location, energy, and security. The outcomes of this project will form the basis for design of intelligent wireless networks for defence and civilian applications.
