ABSTRACT

There are some of the studies on sensor middleware. However the standard middleware has not yet been defined. Especially, this paper focuses on the processing an intelligent service of the main functions of middleware. Several applications in the sensor network environment support not only monitoring services, but also sensor-based context-awareness and intelligent services based on sensors. However, the previous studies about USN middleware only mentioned the need for intelligent service and did not discuss the architecture and method for supporting the intelligent service in detail. Therefore this paper designs a USN middleware for providing intelligent services and proposes the method for processing the services. For this purpose, this paper proposes the Sensor-Service ontology to define the concept of services and sensors for USN applications and the relationship between them. The Sensor-Service ontology is used to infer high-level information from low-level information. To apply a variety of environmental context to intelligent services, the paper uses the rule-based reasoning. This paper implements the proposed intelligent service middleware as a prototype and then shows that the middleware can be used for a variety of USN applications through the performance evaluation.
