Abstract

In this paper, we will be using separate software tools (wireless network and Finite Differences Time Domain based simulators) to simulate the implementation of a wireless sensor network model based on low-rate/power transmission technology. The system operates in an unlicensed frequency range and the sensing nodes rely on surface plasmon resonance phenomenon for the detection of combustion by-products. More specifically, our simulations contemplate a system for early detection of fire in densely forested areas, which will then issue a warning in an automated way. As late detection of these events usually leads to severe flora, terrain, wild life and societal impact, an early warning system will provide better event assessment conditions, thus enabling efficient resources allocation, adequate response and would certainly be a promising improvement in minimizing such disruptive impairments.
