Fault Detection Mechanisms In Wireless Sensor Networks-A Review

[Full Text]



Harshitha, Dr. K N Shreenath



Wireless Sensor Networks, Fault Detection, Fault tolerance.



Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are vital apparatus for checking the discrete remote situations. As one of the key innovations engaged with WSNs, fault recognition is a basic in most WSN applications. Wireless sensor networks are self-organized networks that regularly comprise of an expansive number of sensing devices with severely restricted processing, storage and communication capabilities and limited energy supply. Wireless Sensor Networks are normally fault- prone and the reliability of WSN is influenced by faults that may occur, because of different reasons such as malfunctioning hardware and software glitches, separation or natural reasons. The primary point of this paper is to consider a variety of approaches of fault detection techniques in WSNs and its impending predictions. To accomplish this point, we reviewed many existing approaches and providing a broad outline of fault detection and fault tolerance in WSNs. At last, in this paper, the summary of existing fault detection techniques is given and furthermore examination is made to help sensor applications.
