In future distributed systems, the appearance of mechanisms that should be able to realize robust, predictable and self-adaptive behaviour for existing networked systems can be seen as a critical enabler for further growth. If, in addition, such mechanisms are related to options for achieving cooperation of several (heterogeneous) network elements and/or domains, with the aim of reducing energy wastage and minimizing energy consumption, then the challenge becomes critical. To this aim, this paper discusses an innovative approach, focusing upon the development of energy-aware distributed and cooperating systems for monitoring and control, centred on appropriate wireless sensor networks for the provision of radio and environmental context information.
