MEMS sensors make a rich design space of networked sensors viable. They can
be deeply embedded in the physical world and spread throughout our environment like
"smart dust". Sensors now interact with various fields and forces to detect light, heat,
position, movement, chemical presence, and so on. In each of these areas, the technology
is crossing a critical threshold that makes networked sensors an exciting regime to apply
systematic design methods. Today, networked sensors can be constructed using
commercial components on the scale of a square inch in size and a fraction of a watt in
power.
