Millennial Net hopes to hook up 21st Century sensor networks

While sensors have countless uses within devices, Millennial Net Inc. of Cambridge, Mass., is looking at the bigger picture as it gets hundreds of sensors to self-organize into wireless networks. Together, they serve as commercial and environmental nervous systems. For small tech sensor makers such as Nanomix Inc., or Kionix Inc., such systems could be a way to plug into a vast new market. ON World, a San Diego-based research firm, predicts that by 2010, more than 500 million wireless sensing points will ship in a $7 billion annual market.
