Wireless sensor networks comprises number of sensors and they are interlinked with each other to perform similar function. Wireless Sensor Networks play an important role in Environmental and Agricultural Monitoring Application to monitor, inform, and offer granular control of agriculture and environment situations in real-time. The integration of sensors with wireless technology helps in monitoring environmental characteristics such as barometric pressure, atmospheric humidity, underground water level, wind direction, rainfall, and wind speed, allowing end-users located remotely to manage this information.
Increasing population, industrialization and innovative agricultural activities drive the Wireless sensor networks market. These networks help to monitor the changing environmental conditions due above factors. It also helps to manage air, water and soil pollution by providing valuable insights through sensor network. The Integration of wireless sensor networks and combined with big data processing and cloud computing offers opportunity to achieve easy-human-system interaction. High cost of the wireless technology and uncertainty over reliability of wireless systems are the biggest challenges faced by this market.
