Poster Abstract: Prototyping a Software Factory for Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are often advertised with high sensing accuracy, long lifetime, and easy deployment. However, they are still not widely used in environmental research due to poor tool support and high complexity. A wider use of WSNs in field science would enable researchers to address scientific questions that are infeasible today. To address this issue, the authors design and prototype a Software Factory for WSNs that hides the complexity of software development for embedded systems. It exposes a visual domain-specific modeling language and supports code generation for resource constrained devices.
