Applying a MultiParadigm Approach to Implementing Wireless Sensor Network Based River Monitoring
Source: Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
This paper describes the application of the DisSeNT middleware to implement Wireless Sensor Network based river monitoring. DisSeNT provides LooCI, an efficient runtime reconfigurable component model, PMA, a lightweight policy-based management framework and QARI, a declarative quality-aware deployment framework. Using a river monitoring case-study, this paper analyzes how these distinct software development paradigms can be used in a complimentary fashion to develop efficient wireless sensor network applications. The resulting system has been deployed and evaluated in a real-world river monitoring scenario in the city of Sao Carlos, Brazil.
