The latest trends of MEMS sensors are summarised in this chapter. The aim of this chapter is to present an example of the working prototype of the multi-measurand, wireless, intelligent sensor incorporating intelligence that would allow controlling the way sensors take measurements and communicate with the system. This chapter presents the functionality of the internal sensor control system also called house keeping and its capability with: measurement using various strategies; transmission of data; sensing part control; power management; and self diagnostic possibilities. This chapter introduces the way the house keeping system functions within the test bed application, presenting the experience in the application and identifying the procedures for the software and hardware.
