Applying a MultiParadigm Approach to Implementing Wireless Sensor Network Based River Monitoring
This paper describes the application of the DisSeNT middleware to implement Wireless Sensor Network based river monitoring. DisSeNT provides LooCI, an efficient runtime reconfigurable component model, PMA, a lightweight policy-based management framework and QARI, a declarative quality-aware deployment framework. Using a river monitoring case-study, this paper analyzes how these distinct software development paradigms can be used in a complimentary fashion to develop efficient wireless sensor network applications. The resulting system has been deployed and evaluated in a real-world river monitoring scenario in the city of Sao Carlos, Brazil.
