Query Management in a Sensor Environment

Executive Summary

Traditional sensor network deployments consisted of fixed infrastructures and were relatively small in size. More and more, the authors see the deployment of ad-hoc sensor networks with heterogeneous devices on a larger scale, posing new challenges for device management and query processing. In this paper, they present their design and prototype implementation of XSense, an architecture supporting metadata and query services for an underlying large scale dynamic P2P sensor network. The authors cluster sensor devices into manageable groupings to optimise the query process and automatically locate appropriate clusters based on keyword abstraction from queries.
