IJSNet proposes and fosters discussion on and dissemination of issues related to research and applications of distributed and wireless/wired sensor and actuator networks. Sensor networks is an interdisciplinary field including many fields such as wireless networks and communications, protocols, distributed algorithms, signal processing, embedded systems, and information management.
Topics covered include
- Energy efficiency, energy efficient protocols
- Location techniques, routing, medium access control
- Coverage, connectivity, longevity, scheduling, synchronisation
- Network resource management, network protocols, lightweight protocols
- Fault tolerance/diagnostics
- Data storage, query processing, system architectures, operating systems
- In-network processing and aggregation
- Learning of models from data
- Performance analysis
- Sensor tasking and control
- Security, privacy, data integrity
- Modelling of systems/physical environments, simulation tools/environments
The objectives of IJSNet are to establish an effective channel of communication between industry, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with related problems in sensor networks. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of sensor networks.
IJSNet provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, developers, working in the field of sensor networks to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJSNet publishes original papers, short papers, and review papers. Special Issues devoted to important topics in sensor networks will also be published.

IoT and COVID-19
15 June, 2021
Anto Merline Manoharan of Anna University, in Chennai and M.G. Sumithra of the KPR Institute of Engineering and Technology, in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India, discuss an IoT technology inextricably linked to the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, the team describes secure IoT integrated with a wireless sensor network more monitoring the health condition of an infected patient. Writing in the International Journal of Sensor Networks, the team also explains their novel encryption system to ensure patient privacy [...]More details...
Ultrasonic social distancing
31 August, 2021
Social distancing has been a critical component of the world's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The idea being that keeping physical apart from other people will reduce the risk of a person spreading the respiratory virus to someone else. It is just one component of our response, which also includes wearing face coverings, frequent hand sanitisation, and obtaining a vaccine against the virus. Such measures would not seem unfamiliar to past generations who lived through pandemics. However, the technology we have today that was simply unimaginable at the time of the 1918-1920 influenza pandemic means we can make our response even more effective. New research in the International Journal of Sensor Networks discusses the potential of ultrasonic sensors to help people keep a safe distance from others when social distancing is deemed necessary in a pandemic situation. Mohit Ghai and Ruchi Gupta of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at ADGITM, IP University in Delhi, India, describe a small, portable sensor-alarm device based on an Arduino system. Arduino is an open-source hardware and software system that can be used to quickly build single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits with a variety of inexpensive applications [...]More details...
