  • In this paper, we describes a design of Wireless Mesh Network based middleware that applied into USN(Ubiquitous Sensor Networks). WMN based middleware is a technique which links data between widely distributed sensor devices and WMN for context-awareness. The use of WMN base middleware in this paper makes possible communication on insufficiently network constructed area by use of WMN. WMN based middleware also anaylze events comprehensively that originated from specific sensor device. Based on the result from analyzed data with predetermined value WMN based middleware will given an order to designated actuator devices. Middleware operate each function of sensor network management and application service separately.

  • We propose the sensor networks middleware based on publish/subscribe model for adaptive service to client. Publish/subscribe middleware make capability of sensor to data through the advertisement message. Based on capability of sensor, Publish/subscribe middleware adaptively service to client. And client make a collection of information that it require. Therefore middleware service more effectively.

  • Recently many researches are investigating for ubiquitous computing and network. In the real world many sensor devices must be equipped to provide many services for users. To make computing environment easy and more user friendly, middleware system not only hides all complexities (network, system, services, etc), but also needs to have efficient context inference scheme and system reconfiguration capability. In this paper we suggest context-aware middleware design for sensor network which provides efficient computing environment for end-users. We also present XML based implementation of our system.

  • In this paper, designing and implementing multi-communication middleware in multi-thread environmet through event-based synchronization method are proposed for stable data transmission of electronic optical equipment, which requires combining camera and various sensors to process multiple high-speed data. To verify the performance of the implemented communication middleware, image data and sensor data were sent to compare differences in reception-based and transmission-based cycles, and the maximum number of communication possibilities to transmit and process multiple was measured and analyzed. In addition, the proposed communication middleware's performance was verified through experiments such as validating the integrity of the transmitted data and measuring the Round Trip Time.

  • In existing middleware for body sensor networks, energy limitations, hardware heterogeneity, increases in node temperature, and the absence of software reusability are major problems. In this paper, we propose an event-based grid middleware component that solves these problems using distributed resources in in vivo sensor nodes. In our multi-hop communication, we use a lightweight rendezvous routing algorithm in a publish/subscribe system of event-based communication. To facilitate software reuse and application development, a modified open services gateway initiative has been implemented in our middleware architecture. We evaluated our grid middleware in a cancer treatment scenario with combined hyperthermia, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy procedures, using in vivo sensors.

  • In this paper, we propose a communication middleware for development of HACCP(Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) automation system, which is composed of lightweight devices and a server, to support effective HACCP data management. To provide the proper HACCP data to lightweight devices, we design the communication message protocol based on HACCP management regulation model. Moreover, we develop the communication middleware that performs various functions, such as processing of communication protocols for HACCP data, analyzing of messages between devices and a server, and providing database managements tools. In addition, it takes a role to guarantee sharing consistent data among the devices and server, through the active updates for information on devices. Actually, the proposed communication middleware can be a part of critical system to develop a HACCP automation system with lightweight devices, because it implements the HACCP communication protocols making lightweight devices execute every HACCP task.

  • Recently, MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) has started a new standardization activity called MPEG Multimedia Middleware (M3W). This activity covers the standardization for a middleware rrith a set of APIs. The standard middleware, called M3W, will support independent multimedia applications for hardware and software such as operating systems so that the portability and interoperability of multimedia applications are greatly improved. In this article, we will introduce the recent works on M3W standardization including the rationale that motivates the activity with the advantages of having the standardized middleware for multimedia application, component technologies being considered for the M3W, and the current status of the standardization.

  • The advance of computer, network, and Internet technology enables the control systems to process the massive data in the distributed computing environments. To implement and maintain the software in distributed environment, the component-based methodology is widely used. This paper proposes the middleware architecture for the distributed computer control system. With the proposed middleware services, it is relatively easy to maintain compatibility between products and to implement a portable control application. To achieve the compatibility between heterogeneous systems, the proposed architecture provides the communication protocols based on the XML with lightweight event-based service.

  • The software components of embedded control systems get extremely complex as they are designed into distributed systems get extremely complex as they are designed into distributed systems consisting of a large number of inexpensive microcontrollers interconnected by low-bandwidth real-time networks such as the controller area network (CAN). While recently emerging middleware technologies such as CORBA and DCOM address the complexity of distributed programming, they cannot be directly applied to distributed control system design due to their excessive resource demand and inadequate communication models. In this paper, we propose a CORBA-based middleware design for CAN-based distributed embedded control systems. Our design goal is to minimize its resource need and make it support group communication without losing the IDL (interface definition language) level compliance to the OMG standards. To achieve this, we develop a transport protocol on the CAN and a group communication scheme based on the well-known publisher/subscriber model. The protocol effectively realizes subject-based addressing and supports anonymous publisher/subscriber communication. We also customize the method invocation and message passing protocol, referred to as the general inter-ORB protocol (GIOP), of CORBA so that CORBA method invocations are efficiently serviced on a low-bandwidth network such as the CAN. This customization includes packed data encoding and variable-length integer encoding for compact representation of IDL data types. We have implemented our CORBA-based middleware on the mArx real-time operating system we have developed at Seoul National University. Our experiments clearly demonstrate that it is feasible to use CORBA in developing distributed embedded control systems possessing severe resource limitations. Our design clearly demonstrates that it is feasible to use a CORBA-based middleware in developing distributed embedded systems on real-time networks possessing severe resource limitations.

  • The aim of this paper is to propose a communication middleware which makes it possible to easily and efficiently develop the networking support for multi-user applications. Even though existing middleware and development tools provides lots of functionalities to realize distributed applications, they are purely low-level services passing the most development efforts to developers, or too specialized for a specific application. It brings a challenging issue of how the middleware supports general and efficient high-level mechanisms. To meet different networking and interaction requirements of multi-user applications, we propose various schemes to provide the communication architecture, the user membership management, the content transmission mechanism and the event management. Our middleware provides developers with application-level APIs and configuration files so that the different interaction requirements of a multi-user application can be easily handled in the developers' point of view.
