A Market-Based Formulation of Sensor-Actuator Network Coordination

Brian P. Gerkey and Maja J. Mataric

In this paper we expound on this economic analogy by constructing a market-based model of sensor-actuator networks and showing how it can be used to achieve scalable coordination. The rest of this paper is organized as follows: Section 2 formally states the coordination problem, Section 3 justifies a market-based solution, Section 4 explains how performance is measured, Section 5 describes our market model, and Section 6 concludes with a discussion of future work.
