dc.description.abstract My thesis investigates the collaboration and evolution of micro controller networks. In the thesis, I have developed a framework for flexibly connecting embedded systems, called microsynergy. The framework gives to users the ability unify a network of micro controller-based devices into logically defined collaborative networks. It establishes a communication infrastructure across a variety of networking protocols and allows dynamic reconfiguration of the micro controller network by means of a visual language. The infrastructure includes a mechanism for the construction and/or reuse of stateful coordination logic that manages the inter-communication of the network enabled devices and software components to create new functionalities and behaviours from a set of predefined software and hardware components. microsynergy looks at only a few of the issues, such as how to integrate devices with minimal impact on the code base, integrating devices of various protocols, building easy to understand and modifiable networks of devices that can act as a unified system. It include the design, implementation and analysis, through an informal user study, of a specific implementation of visual programming paradigm and its relation to collaborative networks. en_US
