Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and implementation of Cascades, a scalable, flexible and composable middleware platform for multi-modal sensor networking applications. The middleware is designed to provide a way for application writers to use pre-packaged routines as well as incorporate their own application-tailored code when necessary. As sensor systems become more diverse in both hardware and sensing modalities, such systems support will become critical. Furthermore, the systems software must not only be flexible, but also be efficient and provide high performance. Experimentation in this paper compares and contrasts several possible implementations based upon testbed measurements on embedded devices. Our experimentation shows that such a system can indeed be constructed.
