Millennial Net hopes to hook up 21st Century sensor networks

Abstract:
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.
