Abstract: Recently, Wireless Sensor/Actuator Networks (WSAN) became a major innovation in the modern world. This technology consists of two main parts, a group of sensors and actuators. Sensors act as an information gathering tool which collects data about the physical world like heat and humidity then communicates this data with other nodes on the network. Upon receiving the collected data, actuators can then perform actions that interact with the physical world according to the collected data. This type of interaction between devices and the physical world sparked new horizons in IoT and other smart devices. Therefore, some applications based on WSAN can automate specific tasks like controlling temperature of the room in a smart home. But as technology advances, WSAN based applications are implemented into more mission critical systems where QoS is very crucial and cannot tolerate packet loss or delays. Hence, QoS have become an important factor when discussing mission critical WSAN, since such systems can be life-threatening in many cases. Therefore, in this paper, we will provide a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art approaches, protocols and applications that contributed in enhancing QoS in WSAN. Furthermore, we will provide our own comments on the shortcomings of the proposed solutions and discuss our take on how the discussed techniques can be further improved. Keywords-WSAN, WSN, IoT, QoS, Deep Learning, Routing Protocols, Convolutional Neural Network, CNN, Recurrent Neural Network, RNN.
