The active rule system is a key element of the rule-based mobile agent middleware system for activeness and autonomy of the sensor network. The rule manager, which is the main components of active rule based mobile agent framework and active rule system, performs the control and management of the rule-related processes. In this paper, we design and implement the roles and functions of the rule manager in detail. The proposed rule manager plays an important role in the sensor network

The sensor data server loads the active rule on the mobile agent by the rule manager according to the situations, and the mobile agent migrates to the destination node and performs the designated action. This active rule-based mobile agent middleware system presents the usefulness for the various sensor network applications. Through the rule execution experiment using the rule-based mobile agent, we show the adaptability and applicability of rule-based mobile agent middleware system to the dynamic environmental changes in sensor networks. ▸Keyword : Active Rule System, Rule Manager, Sensor Network Middleware, Mobile Agent I . In t r o duct i o n IT-based control mechanism, using mobile agent framework with active rule, is a suitable paradigm that allows consumer-oriented control [1,2,4]. In daily life, the user's emotion-based illumination technique plays an important role in power saving control. To obtain the optimal power saving effect and illumination standards, the smart power saving techniques are required in sensor network environment [5,7,8]. It is suitable for the active Information and Communication Engineering, Kunsan National University, Kunsan, Korea, in 1986. He is interested in sensor network middleware, active rule system, agent system and cloud computing.
