                                  Abstract Summary:

The objective of this project is to design of an environmental pollution monitoring
network for Bangladesh using the IEEE 802.15.4 standard and ZigBee technology. The
goal of such network is to monitor the data of possible pollutants from different key
elements of environment. The Sundarban, largest mangrove forest of the world along
with the Bay of Bengal make Bangladesh a country of particular interest in case of
environmental factors. But due to large scale environment pollution now the country is
vulnerable to) natural & social disasters. So we have chosen to design a sensor network
for environmental pollution in Bangladesh using the wireless technology IEEE 802.15.4
so that information and data gathered from this network can be used for further analysis
to attain sustainable development of our country. As our economy is not strong so we
intend to design the WSN in a cost effective way but ensuring highest efficiency. Our
intended goal is to set up a WSN throughout different regions to collect different data of
various factors effecting our environment from remote sensors and collect them in a user
friendly way for further processing and analysis. To set up a WSN we have to study
pollution factors with respect to Bangladesh scenario for back ground information. We
have Chosen IEEE 802.15.4 standard and ZigBee technology as backbone for our
proposed WSN. IEEE 802.15.4 standard offers an implementation for the lower layers,
PHY and MAC, for a typical WSN .It focuses mainly on low-cost, low-speed
communication between devices. The basic IEEE 802.15.4 framework defines a 10-meter
communications area with a maximum transfer rate of 250kbits/s.It is the basis for
the ZigBee specification, which further attempts to offer a complete networking solution
by developing the upper layers which interface with the IEEE 802.15.4 MAC. ZigBee is
a specification for a suite of high level communication protocols using small, low-
power digital radios based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for WSN. ZigBee modems can
be used to communicate with many ZigBee devices and we can choose specific device/s
to communicate at any time. One of the main design goals of our pollution monitoring
system is to have a cost effective WSN. So the choice is IEEE 802.15.4 which can also be

used for effective indoor communication over several hundred meters. Also ZigBee uses
unlicensed frequency bands, additional networking features, small form factors and low
power. That’s why we choose IEEE 802.15.4 standard and ZigBee technology for our
project. We have already designed convenient and practically implantable algorithms for
authentication, localization, and different security measures for our proposed WSN in
virtual environment. We will use TELOSB motes as per availability in our lab for
primary feasibility test. After testing in small scale, we will set up a small WSN for
pollution monitoring using temperature sensors as a proof of concept. In the practical
implementation of this auspicious and highly demanded work, the student grant of IEEE
will help us most.
