FABRIC: Towards Data Type-Centric Middleware Synthesis

Dennis Pfisterer, Horst Hellbrück, Stefan Fischer


Writing,applications for wireless sensor net- works,presents a complex,domain,that requires expertise from various fields. Existing middleware,frameworks,alle- viate this problem,by hiding low-level networking,aspects but are either not comprehensive,or not flexible enough. Our system,called FABRIC addresses,this problem,by proposing,a data type-centric middleware,synthesis frame- work,for heterogeneous,devices. While hiding networking aspects and complexity of distributed systems, it still offers the required flexibility because data handling can be differentiated on a per-type basis. This approach,especially addresses the unique requirements,of resource constrained devices. In addition, FABRIC supports a clear separation between application and framework development, thus supporting,a less error-prone development,process.
