The aim of our research is to understand what design parameters are responsible for the environmental impacts of deployment and operation of wireless sensor networks (WSN), with the underlying aim to support their ecodesign. In this paper, we propose an environmental impact assessment model for WSN based on lifecycle assessment (LCA) and network energy analysis. It is based on a two-level approach, given that environmental impacts of WSN are generated by both the network elements and their synergetic effects. This model will help analyse the sensibility of the environmental impacts to parameter changes, and compare different solutions.
