Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A number of different system concepts have become apparent in the broader context of embedded systems over the past few years. Whilst there are some differences between these, this book argues that in fact there is much they share in common, particularly the important notions of control, heterogenity, wireless communication, dynamics/ad hoc nature and cost.

The first part of the book covers cooperating object applications and the currently available application scenarios, such as control and automation, healthcare, and security and surveillance. The second part discusses paradigms for algorithms and interactions. The third part covers various types of vertical system functions, including data aggregation, resource management and time synchronization. The fourth part outlines system architecture and programming models, outlining all currently available architectural models and middleware approaches that can be used to abstract the complexity of cooperating object technology.

Finally, the book concludes with a discussion of the trends guiding current research and gives suggestions as to possible future developments and how various shortcomings in the technology can be overcome.

Format: Hardcover
Many facets of embedded systems, which we depend on in our day-to-day lives, are covered in this book. Virtually all electronic systems have embedded processors. Usually when we discuss computer networks, we mean networks of computer systems. However, in this book, embedded systems networked together are described as cooperating embedded systems. After a brief introduction, the book has five major parts dealing with aspects of cooperating embedded systems. The fact that small embedded systems are cooperating and working toward a common objective implies that an underlying network exists to facilitate this. This is usually accomplished with the aid of wireless sensor networks (WSNs); hence, the title mentions both cooperating embedded systems and wireless sensor networks. Cooperating systems include a collection of sensors, actuators, and controllers that communicate with each other to achieve a common goal.

Chapter 2 deals with many interesting applications. This chapter describes many different applications that use cooperating embedded processors. Some of the fascinating applications that have recently emerged are traffic-based systems employing global positioning systems (GPSs) and cellular capabilities. The concepts explained in the book are very interesting applications, and I think many of them will find a practical place in the foreseeable future. I have seen GPS systems employing some similar notions in the market today.

Chapter 3 delves into algorithms that are used in cooperating embedded systems. Many algorithms, mathematical models, and several references are described in this chapter. Chapter 4 deals with vertical system functions like encryption and security, which are also important in designing cooperating embedded systems.
