This volume surveys recent research on autonomous sensor networks from the perspective of enabling technologies that support medical, environmental and military applications.

State of the art, as well as emerging concepts in wireless sensor networks, body area networks and ambient assisted living introduce the reader to the field, while subsequent chapters deal in depth with established and related technologies, which render their implementation possible. These range from smart textiles and printed electronic devices to implanted devices and specialized packaging, including the most relevant technological features.

The last four chapters are devoted to customization, implementation difficulties and outlook for these technologies in specific applications.
