The recent developments in the research and the technology have brought attention to the wireless sensor networks as one of the key enabling technologies in the next 10 years. Ubiquitous Intelligent Sensing Environments have promising future in supporting the everyday life of the European citizens, bringing important social benefits for each person and for the society as a whole. Taking into account the current fragmentation in the European research in this field, CRUISE Network of Excellence (NoE) intends to be a focal point in the coordination of research on communication and application aspects of wireless sensor networking in Europe. To make a significant contribution to the effectiveness of research, the consortium will evaluate, update and communicate the State-of-the-Art in wireless sensor networking (WSN) to the technical community, distilling a path from current technological status to a long term vision. This paper gives an overview of different research topics in WSN and its open issues.
