Monitoring of environmental characteristics plays a key role in development of different scientific and engineering applications. To sense and process the data defining the environment sensors are normally deployed in the space under investigations. The data is recorded using Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) where the data is processed and communicated via radio without any additional prior backbone infrastructure. WSNs cover a wide range of applications such as battlefield surveillance, telemedicine, event detection. An early and accurate event detection using wireless sensor network is one of the key area focused by the researchers in the present times. The present work focuses on the application of the existing protocols for WSNs and determine their limitations.
