TinyOS is an open-source component based operating system designed for highly memory constrained wireless embedded sensor network. TinyOS includes interfaces and components for communication management, routing and data acquisition tools to be refined further for custom applications. This project aims at developing a system which detects overlapping paths for data collection in different applications in the network and utilizing that information for efficient data acquisition. This prevents a reconfiguring the entire network of wireless sensor nodes (called motes) for each new application request. The application for initial or first data acquisition request tries to build the tree architecture on motes in the network where each node in the tree knows its immediate parent and children.
