It is neither desirable nor possible to abstract sensor network software from the characteristics of the underlying hardware components. In particular the radio has a major impact on higher level software. In this paper, we review the lessons we learnt using Bluetooth radios in the context of sensor networks. These lessons are relevant for (a) application designers choosing the best radio given a set of requirements and for (b) researchers in the data management community who need to formulate assumptions about underlying sensor networks.
