The use of small, low-cost wireless sensors in both static and mobile ad-hoc networks has the potential to deliver a new generation of systems for the sensing, management and control of the road transport network. Low-cost and small size suggests these devices, often known as smartdust could deliver a vision for a pervasive intelligent ITS infrastructure in the near future. Based upon technical developments and the establishment of an experimental wireless network at Newcastle, this papers considers some of the technical challenges that need to be tackled to deliver this vision and also suggests a range of applications that such a network could be used for.
