The continuing improvements in computing and storage technology as envisioned in Moore’s Law, along with advances in MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) and battery technology, have enabled a new revolution of distributed embedded computing where micro-miniaturized low-power versions of processor, memory, sensing, and communication units are all integrated onto a single board. One of the interesting applications of distributed embedded computing is an ad hoc deployed wireless sensor network (WSN)59 that is envisioned to provide target sensing, data collection, information manipulation, and dissemination within a single integrated paradigm.
