Wireless Sensor Actor Networks (WSANs) are the progress of Wireless Sensor Networks. The combination of sensors and actors, gives WSANs the opportunity to detect different kind of events in the observation field, and to act on them. Sensor nodes are responsible of the detection of the events, while actor nodes act on them. WSANs are used in different application in the everyday life of people, like fire detection and prevention, and aim to make it better. In this master thesis, we are trying to present the main challenges in WSANs, along with the appropriate algorithms and protocols, which are presented in the bibliography. The challenges that we are investigate, are node topology issues, node mobility management, and communication and coordination between sensors and actors of WSANs.
