An Efficient Approach towards Smart Hierarchical Sensor Network using Embedded Systems and IoT Principles
In today’s era, the domain of embedded systems and concepts of Internet of things (IoT) have evolved to a great
extent. According to the recent improvements and advancements in fields of computer science and artificial intelligence the
sub-fields of the domains have proven to be acme upto certain limits. Embedded systems are also well known for their
compactness, compatibility, efficient and ability to achieve M2M (Machine to Machine) communication in any application.
These systems when configured with appropriate hardware and software settings can be deployed in any smart environment
to achieve improvised communication between machines using wireless technologies. This paper describes a smart
hierarchical sensor network based on a microcontroller-processor: ‘Rasberry pi 3’. Unlike Beagle-bone and Arduino
processors, the newly configured raspberry pi is equipped with Bluetooth and Wifi features without any external circuit or
support. The vital challenge in this project is to create a strong hierarchical sensor network consisting of nodes supported by
raspberry pi and which would be able to gain and monitor data according to the principles of IoT. This real time
multipurpose sensor network can be deployed in various application and areas such as museums, malls, automation
industries, home automation and business organizations.
