Sensor networks consist of small motes attached with sensors to measure ambient parameters like temperature, humidity and light. As these motes are unreliable due to wireless link quality and also the data measuring sensors cannot be calibrated accurately for a given applications need. The unique data fusion needs are that parameter being measured is distributed across the network and needs to be computed reliably and with minimum overhead and redundancy due to data value being correlated. We show the asymptotic complexity of topology control when applied to power-aware routing is scalable and argue that the accuracy and reliability of the estimated sensor values can be accurately predicted for the physical value being sensed and aggregating. A prefix-based routing protocol is used for data-centric storage, which allows querying distributed parameters using a KEY, VALUE pairs without the need of the sensor node to know its exact geographic information. Intelligent sensor information processing, which is driven by these requirements, is discussed under the framework INSPIRE-DB.
