AziSA is an architecture for open measurement defined by the CSIR. It makes use of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) to provide a mechanism of recording data from drill and blast mining environments. This paper focuses on developing a sensor discovery method that is custom to the AziSA architecture. The method needs to cater for the limitations of WSNs and enhance the strengths of WSNs. The method can be used in a protocol specification for the AziSA architecture.
