Conference paper

With the help of researchers of single-chip microprocessors, it is now possible to manufacture very small embedded devices and gather these in one network. In most cases, the network consists of various sensors, which communicate with the data gathering nodes, data processing nodes, data storage nodes and data visualization nodes (in case a human-machine interface is used to monitor such system). In general, each of such components can be a subsystem of a distributed system.
