A novel and unified design approach for reliable distributed and parallel data processing in large scale networks consisting of high- and of low-resource nodes using mobile agents is introduced. This approach enables the development of sensor clouds of the future integrated in daily use computing environments and the Internet. Agents can mi- grate between different hardware and software platforms by migrating the program code of the agent, embedding the state and the data of an agent, too. Agent mobility crossing dif- ferent execution platforms, agent interaction by using tuple-space databases, and agent code reconfiguration enable the design of reliable distributed sensor processing networks.
