Canonical concerns
Limited resources: Resource constrained, small
size, limited battery
In-situ deployment: Node failure, unattended
deployment
Insecure deployment: security can make or break
system
Large scale deployment
Wireless communications: low capacity,
communication failure, node heterogeneity
