Johannes C. Rauh, "Netzwerkzentrische Datenverarbeitung in Sensor-/Aktornetzen," Master's Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg, February 2007. (Advisor: Falko Dressler)


In the context of the project ROSES (RObot assisted SEnsor networkS) sensor/actuator networks are being researched and developed at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg. Thereby all main topics about sensor networks are being covered. This includes self organisation, energy management, localisation and performance capability of networks and the simulation thereof. A new approach for further optimization is network-centric data processing in sensor/actuator networks. The notable feature of this is that data evaluation and decision-making is relocated from the base station into the network itself. Thus data processing is located directly onto the nodes of the network and these engage directly in controlling the actions of the network. In the context of this master thesis, I have been designing a rule-based language RSN (Rule-based Sensor Network). For the realisation and application of this rule-based language, an interpreter has been developed and implemented. Additionally two other software tools have been developed – rsnwizard and qrsn. These tools allow users to simply extend the language and to graphically demonstrate the functioning of the control tasks. Based on the simulation tool OMNeT++ the network can be simulated and analyzed. For that purpose the language RSN has been implemented into the environment of the simulation tool. The outcome of this master thesis allows the user to write control tasks for sensor/actuator nodes. For each node an individual control task can be configured. When simulating the total rule-based network, these control tasks are used for simulation.
