Optimizing Sensor Network Reprogramming Via In-Situ Reconfigurable Components

Wireless reprogramming of sensor nodes is a critical requirement in long-lived Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) for several concerns, such as fixing bugs, upgrading the operating system and applications, and adapting applications behavior according to the physical environment. In such resource-poor platforms, the ability to efficiently delimit and reconfigure the necessary portion of sensor software - instead of updating the full binary image - is of vital importance. However, most of existing approaches in this field have not been widely adopted to date due to the extensive use of WSN resources or lack of generality.
