Cognitive Sensor Network (CogSeNet) is an intelligent based wireless sensor network system which relies on cognitive processes to provide a dynamic capability in configuring wireless sensor network. CogSeNet is a network structure formed by sensor nodes equipped with cognitive modules allowing them to observe their operating environment and allowing a decision can be derived. A series of actions result so that the nodes can adapt and achieve certain goals by an overall policy. These goals can be as simple as to provide robust connectivity or as complex as negotiate additional resources from neighbouring network groups to forward mission-critical data. In this paper, the concept of cognitive sensor network is reviewed and a preliminary case study is illustrated.
