Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present a distributed systems framework for sharing knowledge and capabilities in ad-hoc networks of devices where network bandwidth, network connectivity and device computing power are severely limited. We develop a distributed registry to store knowledge of device capabilities and their invocation, implement it and show how it can be deployed in a set of network nodes to exemplify its usefulness. The ideas are exemplified with an ambient intelligence scenario known as autonomous road trains.
