Abstract

In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and even in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem, the reconfiguration of sensor variables is an important problem when the role of a system (or application) program’s sensor nodes needs to be adjusted in a particular situation. For example, the outdoor temperature in a volcanic zone, which is usually updated in a system every 10 s, should be updated every 1 s during an emergency situation. To solve this problem, this paper proposes a novel approach based on changing only a set of sensor variables in a part of a program, rather than modifying the entire program, in order to reduce both network congestion and the sensor nodes’ battery consumption. To validate our approach, we demonstrate an implementation of a proof-of-concept prototype system and also present results of comparative studies showing the performance and effectiveness of our proposed method.
