Abstract: Developing and deploying end-to-end applications for sensor networks in a realistic (business) context remains highly complex. We identify two main reasons for this complexity: the need for interoperability between applications and the underlying system software, and the need to integrate functionality that runs on different types of hardware platforms. This position paper argues for an integrated,
generic software architecture for sensor applications. This architecture is the blueprint of a middleware platform that can be assembled with components and customised for three types of sensor platforms in such a way that it contains minimal but sufficient functionality to meet the application requirements. In this way, software developers can be relieved from the lowest level details, which optimises man
power efficiency while still allowing to exploit a system’s resource capabilities in the most optimal way.
