The system is innovative in the way that it supports flock behavior, meaning that a flock leader monitors the state of the other elements in the flock using low-cost radio communication equipment. The paper addresses both details of the(More)
Sensor networks, ad-hoc networking and supporting infrastructure (e.g. middleware) are major building blocks for pervasive computing and pervasive services. Our experience has made it clear that sensor networks, and in particular our flock sensor network, have scarce support for application development needs. To provide for rapid development of pervasive(More)
