ENRICHING WSN ENVIRONMENT WITH CONTEXT INFORMATION

Marek Konieczny

Abstract


Currently the Internet of Things environment suffer from a variety of unique
problems such as low throughput, inadequate support for mobility and notcompatible
(and often close) application environments. However, characteristic
of physical environment often provides opportunities to address these problems.
This paper explores concepts of enriching the WNS environment with
context-based information. By context we consider all data available in sensors
environment, not only data processed by them. Currently this data are not utilized
by sensors, but we think that they can improve overall functionality of the
sensor network. We also discuss the practical challenges facing the integration
of such an approach into the sensor application stack.

Keywords


wireless sensor networks, context-aware systems, data-centric architectures
