Towards Business Processes Orchestrating the Physical Enterprise With Wireless Sensor Networks
The industrial adoption of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is hampered by two main factors. First, there is a lack of integration of WSNs with business process modeling languages and back-ends. Second, programming WSNs is still challenging as it is mainly performed at the operating system level. To this end, the authors provide make-Sense: a unified programming framework and a compilation chain that, from high-level business process specifications, generates code ready for deployment on WSN nodes.
