Leveraging Smart Environments for runtime resources management
Smart environments (SE) have gained widespread attention due to their flexible integration into everyday life. Applications leveraging the smart environments rely on regular exchange of critical information and need accurate models for monitoring and controlling the SE behavior. Different rules are usually specified and centralized for correlating sensor data, as well as managing the resources and regulating the access to them, thus avoiding security flaws. In this paper, we propose a dynamic and flexible infrastructure able to perform runtime resources' management by decoupling the different levels of SE control rules. This allows to simplify their continuous updating and improvement, thus reducing the maintenance effort. The proposed solution integrates low cost wireless technologies and can be easily extended to include other possible existing equipments. A first validation of the proposed infrastructure on a case study is also presented.
