Wisents on the Move

To read: "Embedded WiSeNts Research Roadmap".

According to a market study performed by ON World Inc. on Wireless Sensor Networks called “Wireless Sensor Networks – Growing Markets, Accelerating Demands” from July 2005, 127 million wireless sensor network nodes are expected to be deployed in 2010 and the growth of this market later on is expected to increase in certain application domains.

Wireless Sensor Networks are a canonical example of a wider field dealing with Cooperating Objects that attempts to create the necessary technologies to make Weiser’s vision of the disappearing computer a reality. Cooperating Objects are, in the most general case, small computing devices equipped with wireless communication capabilities that are able to cooperate and organise themselves autonomously into networks to achieve a common task.
