A Software Product Line Process to Develop Agents for the IoT.

Ayala I, Amor M, Fuentes L, Troya JM - Sensors (Basel) (2015)

Bottom Line: Our goal is to enhance the development of IoT applications using agents and software product lines (SPL).Specifically, we propose to use Self-StarMASMAS, multi-agent system) agents and to define an SPL process using the Common Variability Language.In this contribution, we propose an SPL process for Self-StarMAS, paying particular attention to agents embedded in sensor motes.

ABSTRACT
One of the most important challenges of this decade is the Internet of Things (IoT), which aims to enable things to be connected anytime, anyplace, with anything and anyone, ideally using any path/network and any service. IoT systems are usually composed of heterogeneous and interconnected lightweight devices that support applications that are subject to change in their external environment and in the functioning of these devices. The management of the variability of these changes, autonomously, is a challenge in the development of these systems. Agents are a good option for developing self-managed IoT systems due to their distributed nature, context-awareness and self-adaptation. Our goal is to enhance the development of IoT applications using agents and software product lines (SPL). Specifically, we propose to use Self-StarMASMAS, multi-agent system) agents and to define an SPL process using the Common Variability Language. In this contribution, we propose an SPL process for Self-StarMAS, paying particular attention to agents embedded in sensor motes.

f1-sensors-15-15640: Common Variability Language (CVL) as specified in [14].

Mentions: CVL is a domain-independent language for specifying and resolving variability over any instance of any language defined using a meta object facility (MOF)-based metamodel (e.g., the Unified Modeling Language (UML) [27] or a domain-specific language (DSL) [28] defined in Ecore [29]. The CVL overview and related terms are denoted in Figure 1. The instance of the MOF-based metamodel is referred to as the base model. CVL allows us to specify the variabilities of the base model in a CVL variability model.
