Barron, P., Cahill, V. , YABS: A domain-specific language for pervasive computing based on stigmergy, Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Generative Programming and Component Engineering, GPCE'06, Portland, Oregon, USA, 2006, 2006, 285-294
This paper presents YABS, a novel domain-specific language for
defining entity behavior in pervasive computing environments. The
programming model of YABS is inspired by nature and, in particular,
the observations made by the French biologist Grassé on how
social insects coordinate their actions using indirect communication
via the environment, a phenomenon that has become known
as stigmergy. Following this approach yields a simple yet expressive
language that abstracts the complexities of dealing with the
variety of underlying technologies typical of pervasive computing
environments and that facilitates the incremental construction and
improvement of solutions while providing high-level constructs for
defining the behavior of entities and their coordination. We show
how YABS has been used to program a number of pervasive computing
applications both deployed and simulated.
