Integrating Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) for the first time, this comprehensive text explains the importance of their complementary nature, flexible combination, and ubiquitous computing. With a section devoted to each individual element, the text covers the tags, readers, and middleware associated with RFID. It then provides insight into the routing, medium access control, and cross-layer optimization of WSN. The book discusses the enhanced visibility and monitoring capability that is possible and observes practical uses such as a smart home, a surveillance system, and applications for personal health care.
