Traditional model of computing with wireless sensors imposes restrictions on how efficiently wireless sensors can be used due to resource constraints. Newer models for interacting with wireless sensors such as Internet of Things and Sensor Cloud aim to overcome these restrictions. In this paper, we present the Missouri S&T sensor cloud which enables different networks, spread in a huge geographical area to connect together and be used by multiple users at the same time on demand basis. We also present the concept of virtual sensors which is at the core of our sensor cloud architecture. We further discuss how virtual sensors assist in creating a multi user environment on top of resource constrained physical wireless sensors and can help in supporting multiple applications on-demand basis.
