More and more WSNs of diverse capabilities are being deployed so as to get data about the physical or environmental conditions they monitor. Even though a large amount of data is produced by these sensor networks, it is generally heterogeneous and un-semantic in nature thereby hindering collaboration between different WSNs. In this paper, we capitalize on the concept of semantic web and explore the use of associating these semantics with this raw data so as to facilitate easy integration of different WSNs, thereby resulting in better experience for the user. We process this data at the sensing node level rather than at gateway node level and provide a theoretical architecture of the sensor node to facilitate this.
