A Framework For Executing Computational Intelligence Over Distributed Embedded Nodes

Ellen, Robert A. & Campbell, Duncan A. (2005) A Framework For Executing Computational Intelligence Over Distributed Embedded Nodes. In The IASTED International Conference on Computational Intelligence, July 4 - 6, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


Manufacturing and mining automation, robotics, swarms and smart device networks are often implemented upon distributed embedded systems. These systems are typically statically distributed, coarsely recon﬿gurable or deployed on homogeneous networks. A conceptual stack can be formed using modelling languages, system performance analysis and optimisation and recon﬿gurable platform-neutral components to overcome these problems. A framework for computational intelligence-based applications to be built upon this stack has been proposed. Model-Driven Architecuture has been shown to be a promising standard for the modelling, design and development of embedded applications. The Theory of Constraints is proposed as a potential technique for performance analysis and optimisation of distributed systems. Mobile Agents and code mobility can be used in the component architecture to allow for adaptation and recon﬿guration for optimisation.

2 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
