ABSTRACT Many application scenarios have been revealed with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). An Error Correcting Code (ECC) will be advantageous to communications in these applications. With the different expecting on efficiency, security, usability, etc., different codes have been constructed for various purposes. The methods based on algebra theory can work well for constructing simple and usability codes. The theory of algebraic geometry can help construct more complex codes with different properties. With the applications of these codes, it is convenient to arrive the purpose in digital communications.
