Abstract:-  Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is formed by a large number of networked sensing nodes. The main goal of a WSN is to produce meaningful information from raw local data collected by individual sensors. The low cost, flexibility, fault tolerance, high sensing fidelity, and rapid deployment characteristics of sensor networks create many new and exciting application areas for remote sensing. In this paper, a survey on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) and their architecture, applications, standards in WSN are carried out. Further, the test beds used in WSNs and network tools are surveyed.
