Abstract: We propose a unique model Wireless Sensor Networks for Intelligent Spaces (WIS), for Smart Civil Structures, which aims to cover utility of WSN in Intelligent Structures. WIS uses smoke detectors that monitor different parts of the building and communicate to track the spread of the fire. WIS utilizes stress and motion sensors, built into the civil structures, in order to monitor the health of such large structures. We present a novel model of Vehicular Sensor Network (VSN), known as Sensor-VISION (sVISION) which extends the idea of WSN in Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). Few basic MAC protocols for WSN like Low Duty-Cycle (LDC) protocols and Wake up concepts, Sparse Topology and Energy Management (STEM) and Sensor-MAC (SMAC) have been discussed and two of them have been simulated using MATLAB. Using Crossbow's Basic WSN kit, we have obtained real-time sensor values that can be extended utilizing application-specific sensors.
