Abstract
Processing systems, while complex, are often static; algorithms that are utilized are selected based on their evaluation in a static environment. However, the performance of an algorithm or algorithmic system is greatly affected by the environment, concurrent processes, and even implementation details. The SAPIEN (Self-Aware Planner Interface and Engine) system is a control platform that adapts a system in real-time based on constant monitoring of system metrics that affect the performance of the system towards its goal, whether it be low power consumption or optimized computing power. SAPIEN consists of a planner engine that utilizes smart heuristics and contingency planning for intelligent system control. Work proposed in Phase I of this project includes the development of the SAPIEN system and implementation of the planner engine with smart heuristics in a sensor network application.
