In this paper we suggest a multiagent based middleware architecture that is particularly suitable for supporting wireless sensor network deployments in industrial environments like mines and chemical processing plants. Our intention is to make the proposed middleware architecture to be as closely aligned to the Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents standards as possible. The existing agent based solutions for wireless sensor networks lack some important features that these standards mandate and thus reduce their interoperability with other existing or upcoming agent based systems. These standards that we choose for our middleware have the potential of providing a more reliable event reporting mechanism than the one supported by existing agent based middleware.
