Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) can be widely used for managing various scenarios existing in social, industrial and numerous environmental management systems. They have been widely used in environmental monitoring and management applications and have also found application in disaster management scenarios. One of the greatest problems faced by the scientific community in organizing data collection through sensor networks in areas of disaster is the disorder and destruction brought about in the communication systems prevailing in such situations. In this paper, a scientific study of the various scenarios that could occur post-disaster and the various housekeeping functions each sensor node would adopt as part of the self management requirement is provided. We also present a sensor task management framework that could be implemented to provide a low energy consuming, reliable network for WSNs deployed for critical infrastructure management.
