There are a lot of prospects of the vehicular network, including the artificial neural networks incorporating a wireless sensor network. Its number comes after the mobile communication network and the internet. The network is characterized by more through measure and sense and exhibits more comfortable operability and intelligence. A wireless sensor network can be simply defined as “a network of wireless devices using sensors to monitors and recording the physical conditions of the environment and organizing the collected data at a central location.” WSNs measure environmental conditions like temperature, sound, pollution levels, humidity, wind speed and direction, pressure, etc. Thus, wireless sensor networks are widely used for fulfilling the essential needs of environmental sensing applications. These applications show the broad ranges in precision agriculture, monitoring of the vehicle, and video surveillance.

2. Wireless Sensor Network In Vehicle Monitoring: Literature Survey

A wireless sensor network is a sophisticated system used to monitor military, oceans or wildlife (G. Padmavathi et al., 2010), for example. The same concept of mass surveillance and monitoring by wireless sensor networks can be applied to provide enhanced security measures and innovative traffic control techniques. Innovative routing systems have used a wireless sensor network in which sensor nodes are installed in all communicating automobiles and with central monitoring stations and at appropriate points on roads mounted sensor nodes.
