Towards a Formal Framework for Mobile, Service-Oriented Sensor-Actuator Networks

  title={Towards a Formal Framework for Mobile, Service-Oriented Sensor-Actuator Networks},
  author={Helena Gruhn and Sabine Glesner},
Service-oriented sensor-actuator networks (SOSANETs) are deployed in health-critical applications like patient monitoring and have to fulfill strong safety requirements. However, a framework for the rigorous formal modeling and analysis of SOSANETs does not exist. In particular, there is currently no support for the verification of correct network behavior after node failure or loss/addition of communication links. To overcome this problem, we propose a formal framework for SOSANETs. The main…

Towards Verifying Correctness of Wireless Sensor Network Applications Using Insense and Spin

This paper model part of the synchronisation mechanism of the Insense language implementation using Promela constructs and verify its correctness using Spin, and demonstrates how a previously published version of the mechanism is shown to be incorrect by Spin and gives complete verification results for the revised mechanism.

Formal Specification and Design Techniques for Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks

This paper presents a design and validation method for Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks (WSAN) which is supported on a minimal set of wireless components represented in Colored Petri Nets (CPN).

Formal analysis of policies in wireless sensor network applications

The semantics of policies is formalised in terms of traces augmented with information concerning the constraints under which traces are executed, composed according to the network topology and subsequently analysed using the mCRL2 model-checking tool.

A Component Framework for Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks

A real-time component model using light-weight components and a high-level coordination model based on tuple channels is integrated into the framework including high- level constructs that abstract the details of communication and facilitate the data-centric behavior of sensor queries.

The goal of this work is to demonstrate applicability of model-checking to analysis and verification of sensor networks specifications modeled as dynamically changing graphs where connections and disconnections are determined by the distance among nodes.

A Composition-Based Approach to the Construction and Dynamic Reconfiguration of Wireless Sensor Network Applications

A fractal composition-based approach for constructing and dynamically reconfiguring WSN applications that reduces the complexity of WSN programming; results in portable and evolvable software; and allows changes to be managed during execution without having to take the system off-line.
