A ranking method for sensor services based on estimation of service access cost

Wei Wang, Fang Yao, Suparna De, Klaus Moessner, Zhili Sun
2015 Information Sciences  
However, assuming the availability of such information for sensor services is often unrealistic. We propose a ranking strategy by estimating the cost of accessing sensor services.  ...  The concept of sensing-as-a-service is proposed to enable a unified way of accessing and controlling sensing devices for many Internet of Things based applications.  ...  Therefore, our strategy is to estimate the cost of accessing sensor services with respect to a particular query.  ...

A graph-based automatic services composition based on cost estimation heuristic

Nenad Ivezic, Yun Peng, Yunsu Lee, Minchul Lee, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
2019 International Journal of Services Operations and Informatics  
It proves that the proposed framework provides an admissible heuristic based on cost estimations that guarantee a minimum cost solution, if one exists.  ...  Traditional service representation and planning algorithms do not adequately address non-functional characteristics, large numbers of similar operators (i.e., services), and limited numbers of objects  ...  To realize such a framework, this paper presents a method for representing a service and a novel graph-based algorithm using a cost estimation heuristic for services search and composition.  ...
