RF system issues in wireless sensor networks
The RF issues that concern the development and deployment of wireless sensor systems are discussed. Such issues include the impact of the RF propagation channel on the communications range, where the sensor nodes are hidden or covered with vegetation or any other obstructing objects. In sensor systems, the low RF transmit power of the nodes makes the system susceptible to radio interference. It is stated that the RF issues will help in developing and deploying robust sensor systems.
