    Maps: A mobile agent platform for wsns based on java sun spots

    Export to Mendeley

    Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are emerging as powerful platforms for distributed embedded computing supporting a variety of high-impact applications. However programming WSN applications is a complex task which requires suitable paradigms and technologies capable of supporting the specific characteristics of such networks which uniquely integrate distributed sensing, computation and communication. Mobile agents are a distributed computing paradigm based on code mobility that has already demonstrated high effectiveness and efficiency in IP-based highly dynamic distributed environments. Due to their intrinsic characteristics, mobile agents may provide more benefits in the context of WSNs than in conventional distributed environments. In this paper we present the design, implementation and experimentation of MAPS (Mobile Agent Platform for Sun SPOTs), an innovative Java-based framework for wireless sensor networks based on Sun SPOT technology which enables agentoriented programming of WSN applications. The MAPS architecture is based on components which interact through events. Each component offers a minimal set of services to mobile agents which are modeled as multi-plane state machines driven by ECA rules. In particular, the offered services include message transmission, agent creation, agent cloning, agent migration, timer handling, and easy access to the sensor node resources. Agent programming with MAPS is presented through a simple example related to agent-based monitoring of a sensor node. Finally a performance evaluation of MAPS carried out by computing micro-benchmarks, related to agent communication, creation and migration, is presented.

    Title : Maps: A mobile agent platform for wsns based on java sun spots

    Abstract : Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are emerging as powerful platforms for distributed embedded computing supporting a variety of high-impact applications. However programming WSN applications is a complex task which requires suitable paradigms and technologies capable of supporting the specific characteristics of such networks which uniquely integrate distributed sensing, computation and communication. Mobile agents are a distributed computing paradigm based on code mobility that has already demonstrated high effectiveness and efficiency in IP-based highly dynamic distributed environments. Due to their intrinsic characteristics, mobile agents may provide more benefits in the context of WSNs than in conventional distributed environments. In this paper we present the design, implementation and experimentation of MAPS (Mobile Agent Platform for Sun SPOTs), an innovative Java-based framework for wireless sensor networks based on Sun SPOT technology which enables agentoriented programming of WSN applications. The MAPS architecture is based on components which interact through events. Each component offers a minimal set of services to mobile agents which are modeled as multi-plane state machines driven by ECA rules. In particular, the offered services include message transmission, agent creation, agent cloning, agent migration, timer handling, and easy access to the sensor node resources. Agent programming with MAPS is presented through a simple example related to agent-based monitoring of a sensor node. Finally a performance evaluation of MAPS carried out by computing micro-benchmarks, related to agent communication, creation and migration, is presented.
