7 Conclusion

In wireless sensor networks, remote updating of the nodes is essential. Because communication is relatively costly in terms of power, many of the approaches discussed in this paper focus on reducing the size of the code. A typical approach is to use a virtual machine or an operating system to accomplish this.
