Several applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) demand information only from sub-regions of the monitored area. The user establishes the region of interest (RoI) and requires the WSN to collect data only inside this region. This kind of query is called spatial query. The state of the art of spatial query processing considers, in general, that nodes do not fail. However, nodes can be destroyed, interference can deny the communication and nodes can go to sleep mode (turn off the radio in duty cycles) in order to save energy. This work proposes a fault-tolerant energy efficient in-network spatial query processing mechanism for WSN. The proposed mechanism employs failure detection algorithms in order to avoid failed neighbors when forwarding and processing spatial queries. Our contributions are lightweight and resilient because they operate on demand and avoid the use of routing tables.
