As suggested in the introduction, wireless sensors or smart dust motes can be used in such monitoring applications in addition to the wide range of other smart dust potential applications [8].
More than ten years of research in the field of smart dust applications has been done.
Smart dust could act as "sentries" to provide advanced warning of enemy activities, protecting friendly forces and allowing them to deny the enemy specific terrain.
For smart dust to be useful, however, engineers must figure out how to build a global view from the information provided by millions or billions of individual sensors.
