Supporting Concurrent Task Deployment Wireless Sensor Networks
Source: Boston University
Deploying large-scale sensor networks involves the programming of many devices based on a desired mission. Techniques for reprogramming devices in situ have been investigated to mitigate the effort required when program updates are required or when the mission of the system changes. The authors consider a technique that is intended to support multiple concurrent missions by the system by exploiting available resources of the sensor network. In essence, their model is based on a tasking scheme, a common framework for the interchange and instantiation of tasks on multiple devices, and the use of attributes defining the resources in the system.
