An application adaptation layer for wireless sensor networks
In wireless sensor networks, poor performance or unexpected behavior may be experienced for several reasons, such as trivial deterioration of sensing hardware, unsatisfactory implementation of application logic, or mutated network conditions. This leads to the necessity of changing the application behavior after the network has been deployed. Such flexibility is still an open issue as it can be achieved either at the expense of significant energy consumption or through software complexity. This paper describes an approach to adapt the behavior of running applications by intercepting the calls made to the operating system services and changing their effects at run-time. Customization is obtained through small fragments of interpreted bytecode, called adaptlets, injected into the network by the base station. Differently from other approaches, where the entire application is interpreted, adaptlets are tied only to specific services, while the bulk of the application is still written i...
