Abstract

This thesis presents the difficulties and solutions to local processing, secure transmission, and central processing, which are the three stages of sensor net- work protocols. The thesis is organized into three chapters, each focusing on a particular real-life application that highlights the challenges of a particular stage. The first chapter uses body sensor network as an example to show the importance of local processing, the second chapter deals with vehicular network to illustrate the complexity of secure transmission of information, and the third chapter uses location proof service via RFID tags to demonstrate the difficulties and possibilities of central processing and data consolidation.
