Faculty of Business Informatics
Aim:The aim of the research is the use of different approaches and applications of wireless sensor networks in electronic business, research technological component, the description of real projects and various specific applications. In the course of the study different methods of implementing the concept of wireless sensor networks will be compare to obtain practical experience in the application. After that certain calculations and conclusions, which will include a recommendation for the further development of the subject matter, will be made. Goals:Highlight features of the object of study.Give a characterization of the research subject.Describe the theoretical knowledge in the study area.Review existing approaches of various enterprises and service structures using wireless sensor networks.Describe the business models of companies providing real projects based on WSN. In the course of the thesis all the goals and objectives of the study have been achieved. Comparative analysis of different approaches of application of wireless sensor networks was conducted, studied the technical part and certain conclusions. WSN are ideal for a variety of applications information gathering, processing and transmission to meet the stringent requirements of reliability , distribution, autonomy and scalability. Identified the following advantages of these networks:Cost-effective and rapid deploymentNo need for maintenanceHigh reliability and fault toleranceLong-term autonomous operationWide range of applications Systems that are based on wireless sensor networks can:Long operate without replacing the power supplySuccessfully operate in tight spacesPromptly and conveniently deployed and maintainedMaintain the highest reliability , even with the failure of some of the constituent elementsWork around various obstacles inside the buildings and in the open countrysideEasily and quickly modernize its structureRelay information from one node to another, selecting the optimum route data Embodied by big number of companies projects in several main areas of application and human activities were considered. Also, three research model for the study of the most notable companies in the third chapter was selected. We considered two European companies and one Russian. Comparative analysis of their activity was conducted and conclusions were made. Became clear that the wireless sensor networks and the business associated with them, in our country is not yet as well developed as abroad. We should develop our own design and production, including by focusing on the activities of the western colleagues. Becomes very obvious prospects for further development of such networks, even considering the fact that in reality wireless sensor networks are used in a variety of industries. The need for them will only grow with the increasing complexity of the production process, and together with them - and improvement of various technologies. However, before we need careful testing of various incarnations of the concept of wireless sensor networks. WSN have very high potential for specific and because of their features closed market segments, and the open public sectors. Due to the rapid expansion and development of wireless sensor networks and their infiltration in the vast majority of areas of human activity, the release of an independent business segment is likely in the near future will require a more detailed regulation of the use as an operating point of view, and communications law.
