Mobile sensors are an attractive proposition forenvironmental sensing, but pose significant engineering problems. Not leastamongst these is the need to match the behaviour of the sensor platform to thephysical environment in which it operates. We present initial work on using modelsof physical processes to generate models for autonomic control, and speculatethat these can be used to improve the confidence we can place in sensed data.
