SAP Labs France SAS805, avenue du Dr. Maurice Donat06250 Mougins, FranceEmail:name.surname@sap.comAbstract: In-network data processing in wireless sensor net-works (WSN) is a rapidly emerging research topic. The dis-tributed processing could have several advantages for wirelesssensor networks. First of all, in WSN computation is typicallymuch less energy consuming than communication. Secondly,in-network processing enables WSN to provide more com-plex services to application layer, and not only…
