Component Based Software Engineering has achieved notable success in supporting the development of wireless sensor network applications. However, contemporary component models provide poor support for modeling distributed interactions: either relying on inappropriate communication primitives or providing no support for distribution. This paper argues that providing support for distribution is a critical requirement for wireless sensor network component models. To address this concern, we contribute a novel event-based binding mechanism and supporting network framework that allows for easy application composition and reconfiguration. We evaluate the proposed binding model and demonstrate that it is a good fit with the requirements of wireless sensor network applications while being sufficiently compact for embedded mote platforms.
