On Reconfiguring Embedded Application Placement on Smart Sensing and Actuating Environments

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In a smart home environment appliances and objects have sensing, actuating and wireless communication capabilities. Recent embedded middleware initiatives aim at providing an easy to use programming framework for developing applications that require the cooperation of sensing and actuating nodes. To achieve this, the mobile agent paradigm is adopted under which an application consists of a set of communication agents residing at nodes of the system with adequate resources. Of particular importance in such system is to decide which agent to place where so that network traffic is optimized.
