In the field of wireless sensor networks, measurements that
significantly deviate from the normal pattern of sensed data are
considered as outliers. The potential sources of outliers include
noise and errors, events, and malicious attacks on the network.
Traditional outlier detection techniques are not directly
applicable to wireless sensor networks due to the multivariate
nature of sensor data and specific requirements and limitations of
the wireless sensor networks. This survey provides a comprehensive
overview of existing outlier detection techniques specifically
developed for the wireless sensor networks. Additionally, it
presents a technique-based taxonomy and a decision tree to be used
as a guideline to select a technique suitable for the application
at hand based on characteristics such as data type, outlier type,
outlier degree.
