The Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) environments are increasingly becoming intelligent with the rapid boost in the capabilities of sensor nodes. The sun Small Programmable Object Technology (SPOT) platform offers a high-end sensing device in terms of processing, memory and battery configurations compared to other existing in the community. Within the scope of this paper, a health care use case is derived from the concept of service-oriented collector nodes represented by sun SPOTs. The existing Mobile Web Services (MobWS) framework is ported to sun SPOT devices that enable domain specific in-network computations enfolding synchronous or asynchronous classes of MobWSs.
