Sensors as a Service Oriented Architecture: Middleware for Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

There is a significant challenge in designing, optimizing, deploying and managing complex sensor networks over heterogeneous communications infrastructures. The ITA Sensor Fabric addresses these challenges in the areas of sensor identification and discovery, sensor access and control, and sensor data consumable, by extending the message bus model commonly found in commercial IT infrastructures out to the edge of the network. In this paper, the authors take the message bus model further into a semantically rich, model-based design and analysis approach that considers the sensor network and its contained services as a Service Oriented Architecture.
