Wireless Sensor Networks (commonly abbreviated WSNs) are networks of wireless sensor nodes, used for various monitoring, surveillance, security and detection purposes.

TinyOS is an open source, BSD-licensed operating system designed for low-power wireless devices, such as those used in sensor networks, ubiquitious computing, personal area networks, smart buildings, and smart meters. A worldwide community from academia and industry use, develop, and support the operating system as well as its associated tools, averaging 35,000 downloads a year.


TinyDB is a query processing system for extracting information from a network of TinyOS sensors.

Unlike existing solutions for data processing in TinyOS, TinyDB does not require you to write embedded C code for sensors. Instead, TinyDB provides a simple, SQL-like interface to specify the data you want to extract, along with additional parameters, like the rate at which data should be refreshed -- much as you would pose queries against a traditional database.
