For example, let $@ t $@ represent the time delay between an event occurring and the same event being detected. I don't know very much about the distribution of times, but one thing I can say with certainty ...

I've got a sensor network - a collection of hipster detectors planted at various locations in Brooklyn. Due to power limitations, the sensors are not connected to any network on a regular basis. Rather than immediately transmitting information to the central data collector, the sensors instead wake up at random ...
