Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are a useful alternative for environmental control in critical areas to help solve emergency situations or to inspect dangerous zones in installations such as nuclear power plants.

The main objective of this project is to provide a secure, fault tolerant and real time communication infrastructure for WSNs that allows us to integrate other heterogeneous devices such as smartphones, it can also be applied to closed or open environments.

The project scope includes the design and implementation of the infrastructure and its validation in two complementary scenarios: deployment in the contention area of a nuclear power plant to verify the air tigthness and the radioactivity control in an open environment due to a nuclear disaster.
