Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) can have high demands for real-time data transmission and processing, but this is often constrained by limited resources. Cloud Computing can act as the backend for WSNs to provide processing and storage on demand. This paper proposes a generic architecture to support the integration of sensors with the Cloud. It uses a lightweight component model and dynamic proxy-based approach to connect sensors to the Cloud. The feasibility of this approach is evaluated…
