Sensor Assignment In Virtual Environments Using Constraint Programming [chapter]

Diego Pizzocaro, Stuart Chalmers, Alun Preece
2008 Applications and Innovations in Intelligent Systems XV  
This paper describes a method for assignment and deployment of sensors in a virtual environment using constraint programming.  ...  We extend an existing model (multiple knapsack problem) to implement this assignment and placement, according to a given set of requirements (modelled as a utility extension).  ...  In this paper we describe a method of sensor assignment and deployment using an extension to the multiple knapsack problem and how this can be deployed in a virtual environment as a web service.  ...

Composing semantic services in open sensor-rich environments

Jie Liu, Feng Zhao
2008 IEEE Network  
Many sensors are plugged in, thus energy may not always be the top concern. However, the applications that use these sensors are not pre-defined.  ...  Major challenges remain on how concurrent users program and control such environments at the application level.  ...  In SONGS, we used CLP-R (constraint logic programming -Reals) [11] , which can handle constraints with real numbers.  ...
