This paper discusses the purposes, requirements and challenges of creating pervasive networks of devices that have sensor technology and embedded computation. The demands placed on these sensor networks suggest that they have to function in a similar way to self-organised biological systems so concepts can be taken from them to design appropriate models for how sensor networks could work. This paper focuses on the reasons why this is possible and gives examples of previously studied biological systems
