The chapter introduces the topical focus and aims of the book. The book’s practical, experience driven outlook onto the domain of embedded wireless networked sensing systems is justified and the potential gains for the reader are highlighted. The authors promote the adoption of a deployment based, experiential research approach as key to the successful development of new wireless sensing applications. By providing a map of the practical design and deployment problems treated in various chapters, the introduction aids the reader identify at a glance where the issues most related to their current work are discussed within the book.
