Abstract

Sensing resources play a crucial role in the success of critical tasks such as surveillance. Therefore, it is important to assigning appropriate sensing resources to tasks such that the selected resources fully cater the needs of the tasks. However, selecting the right resources to tasks is a computationally hard problem to solve. Most of the existing approaches address the efficiency aspect of the resource selection by considering the physical aspects of the sensor network (e.g., range, power, etc.) but have ignored important domain related properties such as capabilities of assets, environmental conditions, policies and so on which makes the selection effective. In this paper we present a knowledge rich mechanism to intelligently select resources for tasks such that the selected resources sufficiently cover the needs of the tasks. Ontologies are used to capture the crucial domain knowledge and semantic matchmaking is used to perform sensor-task matching. A combination of ontological and first-order-logic reasoning is considered for the solution architecture.
