Wireless sensor networks can provide real time navigation instructions to robots or people attempting to travel in hazardous environments. This thesis presents the design, analysis, and implementation of a distributed system providing path planning and threat avoidance capability to mobile users. Contributions of the system include a unique framework for modeling for the effects of threats as well as original algorithms for discovering the safest path between any two points in the network. The prototype implementation was built using the Cricket v2 / TinyOS platform, and the results from tests of the implementation are presented.
