Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have gained worldwide attention in recent years, particularly with the proliferation in Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology which has facilitated the development of smart sensors. The paper discusses about classification of WSN and challenges of the Next Generation WSN. One of the major challenges of Next Generation WSN is reduction of power consumption. The two approaches are discussed: Ultra-Low-Power Networks and Energy Harvesting. The paper also discusses about some major applications as designing low cost secured Intelligent Buildings, In-Home Health care and Agriculture.
