Recently, there is a growing interest in the design, development and deployment of sensor systems for applications of high-level inference, which leads to an increasing demand on connecting Internet Protocol (IP) network users to wireless sensor networks and accessing the available services and applications. In this paper, the authors first identify key requirements of designing an efficient and flexible architecture for integrating IP and sensor networks. Based on the requirements, they outline an IP and Sensor Network Integration Architecture (IPSA), which provides IP mobility support and a universal interface for IP mobile users to access sensor networks while considering application-specific requirements.
