The cost of production for a single node has been reduced to less than 1 dollar, paving the way for large scale deployments (millions of nodes per network) of such devices. It would seem that agent technology should be useful for these highly distributed networks in terms of intelligent network management and data harvesting for example. Indeed this has been shown to be the case, however multi-agent systems for WSNs are scarce. One reason for this is the difficulty in the deployment, testing and debugging of a distributed application for these devices due to the minimal (if any) user interfaces they possess. In this paper we will propose a methodology for the rapid development of a MAS for WSNs that allows for comprehensive testing and debugging, a luxury not available on current WSN devices. We also instantiate this methodology in a case study for evaluation purposes.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Wireless networking; Sensing technology; Intelligent agents||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||17th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (SEKE 2005), Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China, July 14 to 16, 2005||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
