Abstract: In this paper we propose a hybrid computational paradigm associated with cloud computing and wireless sensor network. Attempts have been made to devise a protocol that establishes communication between sensors and cloud resources. The objective is to increase the availability of real time sensor information across the users. Further it will be possible to share the information of various application specific sensor network deployed at various locations. We suggest a virtualisation for sensor vs. cloud and cloud vs. users. This will facilitate the user to visualise sensor network and cloud.

Keywords: wireless sensor networks; WSNs; cloud computing; virtualisation; sensor cloud platform; ubiquitous healthcare; u-healthcare; scalable architecture; wireless networks.
