The IEEE 1451 standards family provides a set of common interfaces for connecting transducers to existing instrumentation and control networks. Currently IEEE 1451.5 is proposed to define the interface for wireless sensors to a system without a network connection. IEEE 1451.6 is also being defined for a network using a Controller Area Network (CAN). As the IEEE 1451.5 and 1451.6 support both wired and wireless sensor networks, sensor networks shall evolve as heterogeneous networks. We present

We present review of the fault tolerance algorithms in use for wireless sensor networks and issues related to the NCAP for IEEE 1451 standard to address the wired and wireless communication. In this work we attempt to survey some heuristics and algorithms for fault-tolerance and fusion in multi-sensor environments and discuss the Health check protocol and fault diagnosis process [1]- [5] . We also identified the possible sensor failures with wide range of sensors under different work conditions.
