Abstract: The use of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) for monitoring objects is growing in nearly every field of daily life. In this paper we present ideas on how to use WSNs to monitor the relative location and the state of objects that are arranged in a linear order. Special focus lies on low-latency communication and energy efficiency. We demonstrate how to apply these ideas for surveillance of a cargo train. This paper is based on results of the fast-realtime collaborative project.
