On-line Sensing Task Optimization for Shared Sensors

Arsalan Tavakoli, Aman Kansal, and Suman Nath

Abstract

Shared sensing infrastructures that allow multiple applications to share deployed sensors are emerging and Internet protocol based access for such sensors has already been prototyped and deployed. As a large number of applications start accessing shared sensors, the efficiency of resource usage at the embedded nodes and in the network infrastructure supporting them becomes a concern. To address this, we develop methods that detect when common data and common stream processing is requested by multiple applications, including cases where only some of the data is shared or only intermediate processing steps are common. The communication and processing is then modified to eliminate the redundancies. Specifically, we use an interval-cover graph to minimize communication redundancies and a joint data flow graph optimization to remove computational redundancies. Both methods operate online and allow application requests to be dynamically added or removed. The proposed methods are evaluated using applications on a road traffic sensing infrastructure.
