Wireless Sensor Network to the Strange New World of Nanoscience

The advancement of integrated circuit technology and wireless communications has enabled the development of low cost sensor networks. However, there are constraints and technical issues that have allowed the network implementation to be restricted. Therefore, the possibilities of overcoming these constraints can be found in the merits of nanotechnology. One of the goal of WSN enabled nanotechnologies is the feasibility of implanting very small bio-sensors in nanoscale inside the human body that are comfortable and that don’t interfere with normal activities, .

A constituted  decentralised system that enables sensor to support multi–hop routing algorithm, performs self healing will in the near future will become enveloped in the world of nanoscience allowing much smaller embedded system to be constructed that is so miniature but has a lot to add to our world of innovation.

Scientists have set some goals where nanoscience can be used in developing bio-synthetic wireless sensor networks. This involves the development of ultra-immersive sensing and actuating systems for organisms that has the capability of harvesting its own energy, exploiting existing body wide transport system for example, blood, nervous and lymphoid systems in a two orders of magnitude denser than current technology.

The applications will monitor and respond to non-invasive medical diagnosis, possible usage of multiple sensors, human organs that has the ability to detect and respond to toxic chemicals. Other applications will include the social science, psychology, dietary science, political science and National security. The video illustrates the strange new world of Nanoscience. Are we ready to embrace the change?
