In the article capabilities, technical limitations and architerture of wireless sensor networks as a special type of “Ad-hoc” networks composed of a set of small nodes are stated. Various program software and technical aspects for building of wireless sensor networks that are able to sense environment with the special aim of processing and store of information are researched. Problems emerging at the processing and creation of the wireless sensor networks are analized, main tasks for the solution of the listed problems have been put forward. (p. 98-104)
