The vision of wirteless sensing systems requires the development of devices and technologies that can be pervasive without being intrusive. The basic component of such a smart environment will be a small node with sensing and wireless communications capabilities, able to organize itself flexibly into a network for data collection and delivery. Realizing such a sensor network presents many significant challenges, especially at the architectural, protocol, and operating system level. This talk will cover a flexible data centric system architecture that is able to adapt itself to the continuously changing environment and requested services, offering at the same time the needed features for building an efficient autonomous sensor network.
