TinyDSM: A Highly Reliable Cooperative Data Storage for Wireless Sensor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The advantage of a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) compared to a centric approach is the distribution of sensing suites. However, in order for such a system of distributed resources to work in a reliable and effective way a smart cooperation between nodes is needed. In this paper, the authors propose a middleware approach for a highly reliable data storage that helps to assure data availability despite the well known WSN resource problems and disappearing or inactive nodes by providing a reasonable data redundancy in the system. Such a solution helps to ease the design and optimization of the data exchange between nodes as well. Their solution is configurable in order to satisfy the needs of the application on top regarding performance/requirements trade-off.
