Historically, wireless sensor network architectures assume that all nodes participate in a single global task. However, it is logical to think that sensor networks will be exploited by multiple, concurrent applications. In this demonstration we present the concept of Scopes, a powerful programming abstraction that allows to dynamically partition the set of(More)
—To address the real-world challenges in sensor network evaluation, testbeds have been proposed to enable experimentation without taking the typical deployment hurdles of robustly mounting the hardware, installing batteries, and instrumenting sensor nodes for data collection. In the recent past, several research institutions across Europe proposed to(More)
The usage of RFID and sensing technologies in supply chain management applications requires the automatic conversion of large amounts of raw data into manageable business process information. This has led to many performance and scalability issues in existing RFID infrastructures. We present an approach to alleviate these shortcomings based on a flexible(More)
Contemporary BPM systems fit very well with traditional architectures that are based on a pull invocation principle, such as SOA. The proliferation of sensors and streams of events has led to event driven architectures that decouple event producers and consumers. EDAs are push-based and support different control structures. Future BPM systems must therefore(More)
Due to recommendations from government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense or the Food and Drug Administration, mandates from private sector companies such as WalMart, Metro or Tesco, and even visions such as that of the Internet of Things, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies have gained great thrust. The widespread realization of(More)
Wireless sensor network protocols and applications typically need to be evaluated and tested not only using simulators but also on testbeds. While simulations allow studying the performance of protocols and applications in a controlled environment, they usually do not provide a sufficient level of realism. On the contrary, testbeds allow exposing protocols(More)
As initial challenges of wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs) are overcome, their application possibilities evolve. For these applications to move mainstream, efficient programming methods are required which can be used by domain experts. So far, the question of how can WSANs be efficiently programmed remains unanswered. In this paper we examine(More)
Embedded systems operating on high data workloads are becoming pervasive. ECA rule engines provide a flexible environment to support the management, reconfiguration and execution of business rules. However, modeling the performance of a rule engine is challenging because of its reactive nature. In this work we present the performance analysis of an ECA rule(More)
In this paper we suggest a multiagent based middleware architecture that is particularly suitable for supporting wireless sensor network deployments in industrial environments like mines and chemical processing plants. Our intention is to make the proposed middleware architecture to be as closely aligned to the Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents(More)
— Maturity of wireless sensor networks will lead to a world full of smart objects, and remote controlled toys are no exception. Following the growing popularity of multiplayer computer games, we envision a novel application that enriches the gaming experience by taking the digital multiplayer interaction into the physical world of remote controlled toys. We(More)
