A large number of areas, including scientific research, phenomena monitoring, environment sensing and distance education, are looking for new infrastructures to set up distributed measurement systems. They need combining measurement instrumentation, networks of cooperating low-cost nodes, control processes, and computing facilities. This chapter shows how this goal can be achieved by extending the concept of distributed cooperating resources to deal with all these components in a similar way and proposes a Grid-based middleware to set up the distributed measurement system.
