Autonomic computing (AC) is a gifted progress to convene fundamental necessities in the devise of wireless sensor networks and its doctrine can be functional to competently administer nodes function and optimize network resources. Wireless sensor networks (WSN's) are fetching trendy in civilian and military applications e. g. monitoring, inspection, home automation, disaster recovery and several others. More or less any sensor network application entails some structure of autonomic functionality and self-configuration. IBM's inventiveness in regards to Autonomic computing loads of protocols and architectures for network self-organization and administration/management have been projected and being executed or incorporated. This research article illustrates the idea of Autonomic Computing.
