Embedded and wireless sensor networks are transforming research in the biosciences, environmental sciences, and other fields. However, these technologies also contribute significantly to the data deluge associated with e-Research and cyberinfrastructure activities. Embedded networked sensing research is a reflection of e-science and thus presents an opportunity to understand the transformation of scientific work and collaborative research, along with the emergence of communities of practice that give rise to new forms of data production. This chapter focuses on embedded sensor networks and their applications in e-Research, especially in “big science” and “little science” as well as digital libraries.

Keywords:   e-Research, e-science, embedded sensor networks, big science, little science, digital libraries, collaborative research, embedded networked sensing
