A tool using abstract task graphs to facilitate the development, deployment and maintenance of Wireless Sensor Network Applications was demonstrated at the 12th European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks help at Porto, Portugal.
ProFuN TG was developed by the following researchers, Atis Elsts, Farshid Hassani Bijarbooneh, Martin Jacobsson and Konstantinos Sagonas. Using the data-flow programming paradigm, the tool has support for the whole lifecycle of WSN application: from the initial design of its task graph, task placement on network nodes, execution in a simulated environment, deployment on real hardware, to its automated maintenance through task remapping. According to the researchers, ProFuN TG allows to program applications that incorporate quality-of-service requirements and expressed through constraints on task-to-task data flows.
The European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN) is a highly selective single-track international conference focused on publishing premier research results pertaining to networked sensing, broadly defined. The EWSN 2015, the twelfth meeting in this series, placed emphasis on recent and emerging directions in networked sensing. These new and emerging directions include (i) study of networked sensing in the broader context of larger cyber-physical systems and Internet of Things architectures, (ii) investigation of mobile and human-centric sensing, (iii) exploration of large-scale data and information processing challenges.
