A Global QoS-Aware Service Composition in Wireless Sensor Networks

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) present a challenging programming environment because of their limited resources, heterogeneity and highly dynamic nature. Service Oriented Computing (SOC) can simplify application development by hiding platform-specific capabilities behind services. Their services are dynamically discovered and used at run time, enabling application to be platform independent and adapt to network dynamics. While service-oriented computing is widely used on the internet, adapting it to WSNs is non-trivial due to the extremely limited resource available. The selection of which service provider to use and how to adapt as provider change significantly impacts application and network performance.
