Abstract: Sensor network can provide a new kind of instrument that enables us to observe and interact with physical phenomena in real time at a fidelity that was previously unexpected, combining many challenges of modern computer science, wireless communication and mobile computing. The resource limitations of a sensor network, especially in terms of energy, require an integrated approach for the different layers of communication.

In particular, next generation of advanced sensors for environmental applications requires to be equipped with communication technologies able to guarantee the absolute versatility for the wide variety of applications they can be devoted on.

This work aims to present an overview of the benefits and of the most recent advances in antenna technologies, investigating the possibility of integrating these solutions in a large distributed wireless sensor network for the environmental monitoring. An integrated design technique of the wireless device, built with printed patches on a dielectric substrates is here presented.
