A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a wireless network consisting of spatially distributed autonomous devices using sensors to cooperatively monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as temperature, sound, vibration, pressure, motion or pollutants, at different locations. Wireless sensor networks gather data from places where it is difficult for humans to reach and once they are deployed, they work on their own and serve the data for which they are deployed. When the environment changes, sensor network should change too. This paper is an attempt to devise an efficient, robust and stable solution for the problem of remote reprogramming of wireless sensor networks and trying to address some of the problems associated with attempts taken by other researchers such as Network Reprogramming, Sensor reconfiguration and Supporting Tools.
