From Kansei to KanseiGenie: Architecture of Federated, Programmable Wireless Sensor Fabrics

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper deals with challenges in federating wireless sensing fabrics. Federations of this sort are currently being developed in next generation global end-to-end experimentation infrastructures, such as GENI, to support rapid prototyping and hi-fidelity validation of protocols and applications. On one hand, federation should support access to diverse (and potentially provider-specific) wireless sensor resources and, on the other; it should enable users to uniformly task these resources. Instead of more simply basing federation upon a standard description of resources, the authors propose an architecture where the ontology of resource description can vary across providers, and a mapping of user needs to resources is performed to achieve uniform tasking.
