Mobile Agents for Wireless Sensor Networks
Abstract-- The next generation of computers will be embossed by ubiquitous systems. The computer will disappear behind daily artifacts and will support people in their everyday life. Context information from real environment will be gathered by sensors which can communicate wired or wireless with other ubiquitous devices. Developing services on basis of sensor nodes and limited devices is an arduous task. A program running on such a device is static and limited to a single service. If a new service needs to be performed, devices have to be fundamentally reprogrammed and reloaded. For dynamic service distribution a mobile agent system is devised and services are distributed by mobile agents. The idea in this paper is to load a service on a limited device or sensor node when it is needed and to switch services dynamically. The service comes in form of an agent to each device. We developed a mobile agent system called UbiMASS that is downsized to run on sensor nodes.
