Abstract

The article presents an idea of building a wide-area sensor network for monitoring the environmental state. The network combines different technologies for data acquisition and is heterogenic in that it is suited to use different data transmission technologies. A distinguishing feature, making this network different from its existing counterparts, is its easy expansion by adding new sensor types, as well as its scalability and functional universality.
