A Platform-as-a-Service for In-Situ Development of Wireless Sensor Network Applications
In this paper, the authors present a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) approach for rapid development of wireless sensor network (WSN) applications based on the dinam-mite concept, i.e. an embedded web-based development environment and run-time platform for WSN systems integrated in a single information appliance. The PaaS is hosted by a cloud of dinam-mite nodes which facilitates the on-demand development, deployment and integration of WSN applications. They introduce the dinam Cloud architecture and focus, in this paper, on the PaaS layer established by the dinam-mite nodes. In addition to the description of this so-called dinam PaaS, a performance analysis of the dinammite node towards its applicability to forming a dinam PaaS layer is demonstrated.
