Abstract

We present here a design study for a planetary exploration mission using a myriad of microsensors in place of the single probes used hitherto. The purpose of the study is both to provide an attractive scenario for the promotion of the importance of pervasive microsensing technologies and to inform a continuing research agenda in this area. Some useful general conclusions about the importance of high levels of node intelligence and autonomous, self-organizing systems can be drawn from the details of this scenario.
