Abstract

This paper presents the opportunistic service evolution platform. The proposed platform allows pervasive services to evolve over time by exploiting opportunistic communications among mobile nodes on the one hand, and evolutionary computation techniques on the other. We present the main components of the platform, describing their functionalities and technical implementation. Finally, we present the hardware–in–the–loop approach we have followed to evaluate it, where a simulation platform, in charge or reproducing a large number of mobile nodes communicating wirelessly, is integrated with a real software prototype.
