A Rule-Base Approach for WSN Application Development in a Cloud Environment

Saymon Castro de Souza, José Gonçalves Pereira Filho, and Eugênio Fraga Spessimille
Abstract—The development of applications for wireless sensor networks can be a challenging task, requiring the developer to be knowledgeable of low-level issues from sensor platform, operating system, and programming language together with knowledge of the application domain. One consequence of this scenario is that the WSN programmer receives an overload of demands of development, due to the low participation of the domain expert in the direct definition of rules, events and high-level requirements of the application. This fact can be explained, in part, due to the absence of mechanisms to promote the participation of the domain expert in the process of developing the application. This somewhat complicates the process of universalization of applications based on wireless sensor networks. This paper presents an architecture to face this issue. The proposed solution is based on the integration of rule-based system with sensor-cloud computing environment.

Index Terms—Cloud-sensor, wireless sensor network, rule-based system, separation of concern.
