  • The recent development of sensors integrated with memory, power supply and wireless networking capabilities marks a new era in sensor technology, with wide ranging implications for both military and civilian domains. The capability for ubiquitous and distributed sensing has lead to the possibility of data-rich and information-poor environments, where the ability to collect data has overtaken the ability to understand its relevance and importance to the overall system goals. If the benefits of the sensor technology developments are to reach end users, we need to address two key questions. First, what data should be gathered given resource constraints like limited sensor battery power? Second, what information should be shared with humans, and between humans, given their cognitive con...
