Macro-programming Wireless Sensor Networks Using Kairos
The literature on programming sensor networks has focused so far on g higher-level abstractions for expressing local node behavior. Kairos is a natural next step in sensor network programming in that it allows the programmer to express, in a centralized fashion, the desired global behavior of a distributed computation on the entire sensor network. Kairos’ compile-time and runtime subsystems expose a small set of programming primitives, while hiding from the programmer the details of distributed-code generation and instantiation, remote data access and management, and inter-node program flow coordination. In this paper, we describe Kairos’ programming model, and demonstrate its suitability, through actual implementation, for a variety of distributed programs—both infrastructure services and signal processing tasks—typically encountered in sensor network literature: routing tree construction, localization, and object tracking. Our experimental results suggest that Kairos does no...
