How Sensor network is different from Adhoc Network

Have you wonder why the sensor nodes are differed from their counterpart adhoc nodes. here is the list

  1. Sensor nodes are densely deployed

  2. Energy is the main criteria for sensor nodes whereas it is secondary criteria for Adhoc nodes.

  3. The topology of sensor networks changes frequently

  4. all the sensor nodes in any application has a common goal (all the nodes work for a particular application)

  5. Sensor nodes are huge in numbers, so they don’t have global identification to locate the nodes.

  6. Sensor nodes uses broadcasting whereas adhoc nodes uses point to point communicatio.
