Abstract

Efficient software management is one of the great challenges in sensor networking. The main objective is to handle heterogeneity and dynamics. Based on recently developed architectures such as our profile-matching approach, decisions can be taken on a higher level about which software module to run on which sensor node. Going to the physical network, the idea is still to replace the complete binary image of the sensor node application. This process is highly resource expensive. We developed a system that allows to add, to remove, and to replace single modules on a running sensor node without restarting the node. Additionally, the entire kernel can be replaced. One of the most prominent features is the ability to keep the local state of the node, i.e. variables as well as dynamically allocated memory and to restore it after replacing the module.
