Wireless sensor networks provide a model in which sensors are deployed in large numbers where traditional wired or wireless networks are not available/appropriate. Their intended uses include terrain monitoring, surveillance, and discovery  with applications to geological tasks such as tsunami and earthquake detection, military surveillance, search and rescue operations, building safety surveillance (e.g. for fire detection), and biological systems.
