Data collection has always been a major challenge in sensor networks and various techniques have been proposed to enable efficient data collection. One such methodology is the use of mobile elements within the existing infrastructure to enable data collection. The paper proposes the use of existing mobile elements like mobile phones which have enough spare capacity to act as data carriers within a sensor network to carry sensor data. With advent of technology, mobile devices have become so powerful that they can work in a pervasive environment and make decisions based on context information like presence, location etc. Our proposal is an intelligent heterogeneous network in which the sensor nodes act as the data accumulators and the context-aware mobile phones act as data carriers of the sensed data. A framework that enables the mobile node and sensor node communication over Bluetooth is proposed and a p implementation is presented.
