Supporting Multi-Fidelity-Aware Concurrent Applications in Dynamic Sensor Networks

Date Added: Jan 2010

Most existing research in wireless sensor networks focuses on optimally running a single application on top of a tailor-made and deployed network. However, as sensors become an integral part of the environments, the authors posit that sensor networks will be increasingly viewed as platforms that will be used to run several user applications simultaneously. Concurrently executing applications requires the network's resources to be shared across applications so as to make the best long-term utilization of the constrained devices and communications network.
