Platform-based design of wireless sensor networks for industrial applications
We present a methodology, an environment and supporting tools to map an application on a wireless sensor network (WSN). While the method is quite general, we use extensively an example in the domain of industrial control as it is one of the most promising application of WSN and yet it is largely untouched by it. Our design flow starts from a high level description of the control algorithm and a set of candidate hardware platforms and automatically derives an implementation that satisfies system requirements while optimizing for power consumption. To manage the heterogeneity and complexity inherent in this rather design flow, we identify three abstraction layers and introduce the tools to transition between different layers and obtain the final solution. We present a case study of a control application for manufacturing plants that shows how the methodology covers all the aspects of the design process, from conceptual description to implementation.
