An Energy-Aware Middleware for Collaboration on Small Scale MANets
Source: Institut Telecom
This paper presents an energy aware middleware to support collaborative applications on small scale Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANets) made of handheld terminals. This middleware provides a set of communication facilities including a publish-subscribe event system robust to transient disconnections, security features and energy management. The paper gives an overview of the middleware architecture, presents its main functionalities and explains how the middleware is made energy-aware. It presents measurements and actual experiments that were conducted to validate the middleware. The middleware is distributed under LGPL license on SourceForge.
