Plug-configure-Play Service-oriented Gateway - For Fast and Easy Sensor Network Application Development

Abstract

Sensor Networks are typically designed for specific applications. We propose to transfer application-specific tasks from internal sensor networks to external applications, and making sensor networks universal infrastructure connected with gateways. This paper illustrates how we make the development of external sensor network applications fast and easy through our elaborately-designed gateway. Our “smart” gateway is resource-oriented other than just interconnects different networks transparently. It encapsulates the data, capabilities and information of heterogeneous sensor networks to homogenous resources. Besides, the gateway is plug-configure-play in the sense that it’s a common gateway for any type of sensor networks. A universal program and information related with specific sensor networks are separated in the gateway, and you can update the information (i.e., configuration) easily. In this paper, we realize and verify our ideas in practice.
