Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have become a popular research topic recently due to their wide applications. Such wide applications also drive the development of WSNs because usually, the development of WSNs comes from challenges in real applications. Therefore, it is worthwhile to review some real applications to see how WSNs can be used and developed in the future to address more practical challenges.
