"Plug-and-Play: Bridging the Semantic Gap Between Application and Transducers";
- 2005-09-22; in: "Proceedings of the 10th IEEE Internationla Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation",
Plug-and-play is an important mechanism for achieving component
integration and improving interoperability in smart transducer
systems. While recent research in smart transducer interfaces has
achieved a syntactically well-defined interface to arbitrary
sensors and actuators, current \pnp/ approaches are limited by the
semantic gap between the control application and the generic smart
In this paper we propose a solution to this problem by
establishing a smart interface system that consumes the sensor
data from the smart transducers and provides a syntactically and
semantically standardized interface to the control application.
The smart interface system will be configured using data from the
transducer meta-description, a system meta-description
and the requirements from generic sensor data processing.
As case study for such an interface system we present a generic
high-level application component in form of the generic certainty
grid, a sensor fusion algorithm for obstacle detection, and an
approach for automatically configuring this application component
and its associated smart transducer nodes in a plug-and-play like manner.
