The supply chain management business can benefit greatly from automation, as recent developments with RFID technology shows. The use of Wireless Sensor Network technology promises to bring the next leap in efficiency and quality of service. However, current WSN system software does not yet provide the required functionality, flexibility and safety. This paper discusses a scenario showing how WSN technology can benefit supply chain management, and presents SensorScheme, a platform for realizing the scenario. SensorScheme is a general purpose WSN platform, providing a safe execution environment for dynamically loaded programs. It uses high level programming primitives like marshalled communication, automatic memory management, and multiprocessing facilities. SensorScheme makes efficient use of the little available memory present in WSN nodes, to allow larger and more complex programs than the state of the
art. We present a SensorScheme implementation and provide experimental results to show its compactness, speed of operation and energy efficiency.
