Technologies and sample systems that gather sensor data across distances, usually via radio links. This includes general telemetry and SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition), especially for gathering data about wildlife, natural resources, and distributed energy systems.

Companies test prototype wireless-sensor nets: ""At this stage, there are over 100 groups around the world that are using the combination of our open-source Motes with the TinyOS [operating system] and TinyDB [database]," said Berkeley professor David Culler, who is also director of Intel Research's "lablette" in Berkeley.. In addition to the high-profile military application, wireless-sensor networks could be put to legions of civilian uses, from environmental monitoring to providing heath care monitoring for the elderly while allowing them more freedom to move about. "This is a new class of computer," said Culler, who predicted that in 10 years, the emerging compute class "will be well-established, and we'll have a whole new set of challenges."
