Abstract [en]

Hierarchical monitoring is presented on smart house platforms to provide scalability, dependability and energy efficiency. Hierarchical monitoring is a scalable and generic approach for optimization and diagnostic operations in distributed embedded systems. The paper studies the design of hierarchical monitoring on smart house platforms as an example of WPANs (wireless personal area networks). We present the functional partition of hierarchical agents in a smart house, and show that the architecture can be conveniently built upon the widely used Zigbee standard. We give a qualitative discussion of the design scalability and dependability compared to the centralized monitoring. In addition, we quantitatively compare the energy consumption of monitoring communication in hierarchical and centralized architectures, with the classic free space propagation model. The qualitative discussion and quantitative analysis demonstrate the scalability, dependability and energy efficiency of hierarchical monitoring in a domestic environment.
