A distributed coordination framework for wireless sensor and actor networks
Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks (WSANs) are composed of a large number of heterogeneous nodes called sensors and actors. The collaborative operation of sensors enables the distributed sensing of a physical phenomenon, while the role of actors is to collect and process sensor data and perform appropriate actions. In this paper, a coordination framework for WSANs is addressed. A new sensor-actor coordination model is proposed, based on an event-driven clustering paradigm in which cluster formation is triggered by an event so that clusters are created on-the-fly to optimally react to the event itself and provide the required reliability with minimum energy expenditure. The optimal solution is determined by mathematical programming and a distributed solution is also proposed. In addition, a new model for actor-actor coordination is introduced for a class of coordination problems in which the area to be acted upon is optimally split among different actors. An auction-based distributed s...
