Wireless sensor and actor networks are becoming a basis for a rapidly increasing range of applications in industrial measurement-control (M&C) systems. Each application has different requirements in terms of M&C task, node functionalities, network size, complexity and cost; therefore, it is worthwhile time investment to design and implement a middleware for wireless sensor and actor networks that would be adaptable to various industrial applications of interest with a minimum amount of effort. In this paper, a general-purpose application platform is presented. It provides a solution to reuse coordination, real-time routing, task distribution mechanisms, which facilitates the development of new application systems, and reduces the cost of design and maintain.
