Executive Summary

In the near future, the authors envision sensor networks to transport high bandwidth, low latency streaming data from a variety of sources, such as cameras and microphones. Sensor networks will be called upon to perform sophisticated in-network processing such as image fusion and object tracking. It is not too difficult to imagine that computational capabilities of network nodes will scale up relative to the fairly limited resources of current motes. However, it is likely that energy will continue to remain a constrained resource in such futuristic sensor networks.
