A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is better than a conventional network for use in construction and Operations and Maintenance (O&M) because of its lower surveillance system cost. However, effective operation of a WSN is often difficult to obtain because the surveillance targets are usually fixed inside the building or underground. Therefore, this environmental constraint should be considered in the design of the WSN plant equipment surveillance system prior to installation. This study employs simulations of WSN-based fixed facility surveillance using the TinyOS TOSSIM simulator to investigate ideal types and setups of the WSN. Simulation target protocols included LEACH and flooding and gossiping protocols. The results show that the hierarchically-structured LEACH protocol demonstrated better load-balancing and efficiency than the flatly-structured flooding and gossiping protocol.
