Abstract: Modern advancement in wireless communications and electronics has facilitated the development of low-cost sensor networks. These sensor networks can be used for various application areas (e.g., health, military, home). For different application areas, there are various technical issues that researchers are presently resolving. Wireless sensor networks are interesting to researchers due to their broad range of application in areas such as target detection and tracking, environmental monitoring, industrial process monitoring, and tactical systems. A wireless sensor network (WSN) has significant applications such as remote environmental monitoring and target tracking. These sensors are prepared with wireless interfaces with which they can communicate with one another to form a network. WSN term can be usually sensed as devices range from laptops, PDAs or mobile phones to very tiny sensing devices. In this paper we give an overview of several new applications, factors influencing sensor network design and about different network topologies.
