WiSANCloud: A Set of UML-Based Specifications for the Integration of Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks (WSANs) With the Cloud Computing
Source: Cornell University
Giving the current trend to combine the advantages of Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks (WSANs) with the Cloud Computing technology, this work proposes a set of specifications, based on the Unified Modeling Language - UML, in order to provide the general framework for the design of the integration of said components. One of the keys of the integration is the architecture of the WSAN, due to its structural relationship with the Cloud in the definition of the combination. Regarding the standard applied in the integration, UML and its subset, Systems Modeling Language - SysML, are proposed by the Object Management Group - OMG to deal with cloud applications; so, this indicates the starting point of the process of the design of specifications for WSAN-Cloud integration.
