Abstract:Started one decade ago as a wild academic idea, wireless sensor and actuator networks turned into a vibrant research area with a large R&D community dealing with a commercially highly relevant technology. The new paradigm in networked sensing has received significant attention because of the unprecedented benefits it promises in many areas.
Seamless integration of computing with the physical world via sensors and actuators will generate higher living standards, greater safety, more comfort and more efficiency in a more sustainable world. Emerging applications include environmental monitoring, health, sport, transport, public and industrial safety, manufacturing plants and ambient assisted living. However, in spite of the significant research efforts that have been spent world-wide since the start, realization of all these great opportunities turned out to be harder than expected.
In this Strategic Research and Technology Agenda (SRA), the Dutch sensor network community presents its vision on the further development of this important technology.
