We present the basic concepts behind the design and implementation of WebDust, a peer-to-peer platform for organizing,
monitoring and controlling wireless sensor networks, along with a discussion of its application regarding an actual testbed.
Our software architecture provides a range of services that allow to create customized applications with relatively low
implementation overhead. WebDust aims to allow heterogeneous components to operate in the same sensor network, and
give the ability to manage and control large numbers of such networks, possibly on a global scale. We also give insight to
several applications that can be implemented using our platform, and a description of our current testbed.
