Abstract: Future applications running on mobile platforms will sometimes need to query sensors and track sensor data over time. This paper proposes a novel, but natural, solution to querying sensors from mobile platforms, based on the publish-subscribe paradigm. Various options are discussed and the most promising one is included into an implementation. Our evaluation focuses on scalability.

Keywords: mobile networks; ad hoc networks; MANET; sensor networks; query; publish-subscribe; scalability; SENSTRAC; querying sensors.
