Wireless sensor networks (WSN) composed of large numbers of small devices that self-organize are being investigated for a wide variety of applications. Applications, such as military surveillance and large scale assisted living facilities are key examples of applications that can benefit from WSN. Current research for WSN is widespread. However, many of the proposed solutions are developed with little or no a priori analysis.
In this talk a broad view of analysis is taken. Requirements and problems faced for analysis at all stages of a system life cycle are addressed. Some preliminary solutions and ideas are presented for design, implementation, debug, and system operational times. A framework for integrating the analysis is also presented.
