Wireless sensor networks are distributed systems, in which autonomous devices, sometimes called Motes, collect environmental data (such as location, speed, temperature, humidity and sound level) or, more recently, medical data (such as heart rate, blood oxygen level and pulse rate). The data is collected across the network, aggregated and fed into business applications. Sensor networks are an enabler for very different applications, including environmental monitoring, agricultural monitoring, medical monitoring, habitat monitoring and military surveillance.
