Abstract [en]

Despite the numerous possible applications of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), there is a key disadvantage related to the high complexity in programming WSNs, which is a result of their distributed and built-in features. To overcome this shortcoming, software agents have been identified as a suitable programming paradigm. The agent-based approach commonly uses a middleware for the execution of the software agents. In this regard, the present paper aims at comparing Java-based agent middleware platforms in their performance for the WSN application domain. Experiments were performed to analyze two versions of tracking applications, based on different agent models implemented for a given set of middleware platforms that support programming at a high-level of abstraction. The results highlight the differences in the resource consumption (CPU, memory, and energy) and in the communication overhead, providing an indication of suitability for each type of analyzed middleware, considering specific concerns while developing WSN applications. © 2001-2012 IEEE.

Abstract [en]

Advances on wireless communication and sensor systems enabled the growing usage of Wireless Sensor Networks. This kind of network is being used to support a number of new emerging applications, thus the importance in studying the efficiency of new approaches to program them. This paper proposes a performance study of an application using high-level mobile agent model for Wireless Sensor Networks. The analysis is based on a mobile object tracking system, a classical WSN application. It is assumed that the sensor nodes are static, while the developed software is implemented as mobile agents by using the AFME framework. The presented project follows a Model-Driven Development (MDD) methodology using UML (Unified Modeling Language) models. Metrics related to dynamic features of the implemented solution are extracted from the deployed application, allowing a design space exploration in terms of metrics such as performance, memory and energy consumption. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2011.
