Recently, there has been a significant growth in pervasive computing and ubiquitous sensing which strives to develop and deploy sensing technology all around us. We are also seeing the emergence of applications such as environmental and personal health monitoring to leverage data from a physical world. Most of the developments in this area have been concerned with either developing the sensing technologies, or the infrastructure (middleware) to gather this data and the issues which have been addressed include power consumption on the devices, security of data transmission, networking challenges in gathering and storing the data and fault tolerance in the event of network and/or device failure. Research is focusing on harvesting and managing data and providing query capabilities.
