P2P Multi-Agent Data Transfer and Aggregation in Wireless Sensor Networks
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) enable pervasive, ubiquitous, and seamless communication with the physical world. This paper presents P2P multi-agent data transfer and aggregation system architecture in WSNs. The architecture includes four types of agents: interface, query, routing, and data acquisition agents. The interface agent interacts with the users to fulfill their interests. The routing agent is responsible for energy efficient data transfer. The query agent facilitates the collaboration between the interface and routing agents, and is responsible for creating optimized plans to achieve their desired goals. Both interface and query agents are placed at the resource enriched base station because they require computation intensive operations.
