What are Some Ideas to Do a Project on Wireless Sensor Networks

Do you guys want to know about the unique and latest research topics in wireless sensor networks? Well and good!!! This article is about the list if research ideas and sample source code in wireless sensor network.

Phase: I

Initially, let’s take a glance over the list of research ideas to develop a project based on wireless sensor network.

  • Fault diagnosis in WSN
  • Real time node localization in WSN
  • Attack detection in WSN
  • Secure routing in WSN

Phase: II

Now, we have highlighted the research topics based on wireless sensor network through the enhancement of above mentioned research ideas.

  • A deep learning parking detection algorithm using W-Shape magnetic wireless sensor networks
  • Optimal association strategy of multi gateway wireless sensor networks against smart jammers
  • Dual tier cluster based routing in mobile wireless sensor network for IoT application
  • Flying path optimization of rechargeable UAV for data collection in wireless sensor networks
  • Joint optimization of altitude and beamwidth for UAV-powered wireless sensor networks

Phase: III

Here, we have highlighted some sample Cooja source code for the process of clustering based communication among the wireless IoT sensors.

parent.u8[LINKADDR_SIZE – 2] = nbr->ipaddr.u8[sizeof(uip_ipaddr_t) – 1];

parent_etx = rpl_get_parent_rank((uip_lladdr_t *) uip_ds6_nbr_get_ll(nbr)) / 2;



rtmetric = dag->rank;

beacon_interval = (uint16_t) ((2L << dag->instance->dio_intcurrent) / 1000);

num_neighbors = uip_ds6_nbr_num();

} else {

rtmetric = 0;

beacon_interval = 0;

num_neighbors = 0;


collect_view_construct_message(&msg.msg, &parent,

parent_etx, rtmetric,

num_neighbors, beacon_interval);
