Abstract: Based on the extensive analysis of shortcomings of traditional policy-based wireless sensor network management methods, in this paper, we proposed the SMART507 framework for automatically generate policies which introduce swarm intelligence into the wireless sensor network management field. We discuss the components of the framework in detail which include the policy description language and smart policy generation algorithm. At the end, we test the framework in a wireless sensor network simulator Cooja. The result shows that automatically generate policies can simplify the complexity of network management, enhance the effect of network management and timely response to changes in the network.


Keywords: Policy, Swarm intelligence, Wireless sensor network, Optimization algorithm.
