In a typical application, a WSN is scattered in a region to collect data through its sensor nodes. Although individual sensor node is not very expensive, large deployment of sensor nodes in the network makes the total cost considerable expensive. In the meantime, there are many mobile phone users around the world, who could act as data collector sometimes. As a result, quite a lot of money could be saved by decreasing the number of sensor nodes in locations where mobile phone users exist. However, the quality of sensing results by human differs much from each other, which may cannot satisfy the requirement of applications. So wireless sensors still need to be deployed as a complementary approach to participatory sensing. And the locations of sensors deployed should be calculated carefully. The aim is to minimize the number of sensors, while providing enough satisfactory quality of data.
i need simulation on matlab of implementation of wireless sensor networks using mobile phone technology. in this project, I am using cell phones instead of sensors. anybody who can help me using ns-2 (preferred), opnet or matlab then contact me
