Abstract : ExScal stands for Extreme Scaling of ALineInThe-Sand system [1]. The objectives of ALineInTheSandand ExScal systems are to provide detection, classification, and tracking of an intruder using a wireless sensor network. ALineInTheSand used 100 sensor nodes spread over a length of 18m X 5m. ExScal used 1000 sensor nodes spread over a length of 1.26Km X 0.3Km [4].The objective of ExScal is to scale the low cost, power efficiency , robustness, accuracy, ease of deployment, and self configurability properties of ALineInThe-Sand.
